SHREVEPORT, La. — Move over Zac Stacy, Ralph Webb has claimed another one of your records.
Vanderbilt’s talented running back claimed another coveted Commodores rushing record during the first half of the 2016 Independence Bowl against North Carolina State.
Webb entered the game with 1,172 rushing yards, which was just 21 yards short of Stacy’s single-season record of 1,193 yards set in 2011. The junior surpassed that total in the second quarter of the game, eclipsing the 1,200-yard mark in the process.
Earlier in the season, Webb broke Stacy’s all-time rushing record, meaning he now holds the two major rushing yardage records for Vanderbilt.
Webb also joined Stacy as the only two Commodores running backs to post back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. The junior, if he chooses to stay for a senior season, could attempt to become the first to do it three times in a row.
