SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) -Chadron State running back Danny Woodhead broke the NCAA all-divisions career rushing record in a game Saturday against Western New Mexico.
Woodhead got the 121 yards he needed by the third quarter to surpass the previous record of 7,353 yards held by R.J. Bowers.
Bowers, who set the record from 1997-2000 at Division III Grove City (Pa.) College, and Woodhead are the only players to top 7,000 yards rushing in college football.
Woodhead, who won the 2006 Harlon Hill Trophy as the outstanding player in Division II, has averaged 27 carries and 190 yards over 38 career games.
Last year, he set an all-division single-season record with 2,756 yards rushing.
Woodhead's run for the record has brought unprecedented exposure for Chadron State, whose best-known football alum is former Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers receiver Don Beebe.
Woodhead had no Division I offers when he was coming out of North Platte (Neb.) High. He was 5-foot-8 and 175 pounds at the time, and judged to be too small.
