Donnel Pumphrey led the nation in rushing yards (2,133), and finished second in rushing yards per game (152.4) and all-purpose yards (2,370). His 152.4 yards per game were more than 37 other FBS teams and would rank 92nd in the country as a "team." Pumphrey, who was one of four players to lead their team in rushing yards and receptions, had a FBS-leading four games last year with at least 220 yards, including 281 vs. California (11th nationally), 223 at Utah State (37th nationally) and 220 at Northern Illinois and at Fresno State (43rd nationally). He had a nine-game streak with at least 100 yards, which was the longest in MW history and second longest in SDSU history (Marshall Faulk, 10). Against Cal and NIU, Pumphrey became the first back in the nation to rush for more than 500 yards in a two-game period since Oklahoma's Samaje Perine did it in 2014.
