D’Onta Foreman alone in Texas record books after another 100-yard game

Posted November 19th, 2016


It’s a done deal for D’Onta.

Texas junior D’Onta Foreman broke a tie with Earl Campbell in the Texas record books on Saturday. With a 19-yard run in the third quarter of a football game at Kansas, Foreman recorded his 12th straight 100-yard rushing performance. Campbell had 11 straight 100-yard efforts during a Heisman Trophy-winning season in 1977.

Foreman was last held under 100 yards by Iowa State on Oct. 31, 2015.

A contender for the Heisman Trophy as well as the Doak Walker Award and the Walter Camp Player of the Year honor, Foreman entered this weekend’s road trip with 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns on 241 carries. Saturday’s milestone moment also meant that Foreman passed Jamaal Charles (1,619 yards) for fifth place on Texas’ single-season rushing chart. Fourth place and Campbell’s 1977 score of 1,744 yards are up next.

At the time of his record-setting run, Foreman had 108 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. Texas (5-5) held a 14-10 lead over the Jayhawks (1-9).
