Benson now sixth on career rushing list

11/13/2004 - Texas Longhorns

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Texas running back Cedric Benson's 16-yard
touchdown against Kansas on Saturday gave him a score in 36 games,
breaking the NCAA record.

The record of 35 games with a touchdown was shared by Travis
Prentice of Miami of Ohio (1996-99) and Brock Forsey of Boise State

Benson, who leads the Big 12 with 1,599 yards rushing, ran for
161 yards in the No. 6 Longhorns' 27-23 victory.

The senior passed Heisman Trophy winners Archie Griffin and
Herschel Walker and current NFL star LaDanian Tomlinson for sixth
place on the NCAA career list with 5,305 yards.

It also was his 24th 100-yard game. The Longhorns are 24-0 on
those days.

"It's weird when you rush for over 100 yards and the game is
still close," Benson said. "Kansas played a great game and you
have to give them a lot of credit."
