Boom Williams entered Saturday night’s matchup with Mississippi State with 942 career rushing yards. A sophomore running back for Kentucky, it took Williams just 10 minutes into the first quarter to eclipse the 1,000-yard career mark, becoming the 35th player in Kentucky history to do so.
Williams reached the milestone on a 20-yard run to the Kentucky 40-yard line with 2:11 left to play in the quarter. By the end of the first quarter, Williams had already amassed 80 yards on the ground.
Boom Williams has surpassed his rushing total from last season (486) in the first quarter of his sixth game this year.

After one quarter, Boom Williams is on pace to rush for 320 yards. That would be a problem for MSU should it happen.
