Bishop Sankey on pace to break Corey Dillon's school record

Washington Huskies running back Bishop Sankey is putting together what very well may end up being the best season a running back has had in school history. Sankey, who leads the nation in rushing at 149.83 yards per game, is on pace to break Corey Dillon’s single-season record of 1,695 yards. Considering that it is almost guaranteed the Huskies will end up in a bowl game, Sankey will likely have seven games to break the mark, which means he only has to average 114 yards per game for the rest of the season.

Sankey, however, isn’t thinking about getting his name in the record books:

I haven’t thought about it yet. Just trying to take it one week at a time and get ready for each game and try to be productive each week to help the team out (The Olympian).

Sankey’s record-setting pace is especially impressive when you consider that he only carried the ball four times against Idaho State from the FCS. He’ll have the chance to add to his numbers when the Washington Huskies play an Arizona State team this weekend that’s ranked ninth in the Pac-12 in stopping the run.
