Jarveon Williams has broken the program record for career rushing yards. The mark was set on a 6 yard run early in the second quarter against Rice today.

The previous record was 1,752, set by Williams’ predecessor David Glasco II in 2014. Williams has eclipsed that mark despite playing in eight less contests than Glasco.

Williams was only seven yards away from the feat after a 122-yard performance against Southern Miss last week, a game in which the entire team enjoyed a multi-record setting day.

With this mark, Williams now owns almost the entire lot of the program’s rushing superlatives. He set the record for the most rushing yards in a game with 186 against Charlotte last season — a performance that made him the first 1,000-yard season running back in program history. He finished 2015 with 1,042 yards even though he missed the season finale.

He also owns the records for the most rushing yards per game and the most 100-yard games, both per season and per career. He’s still got at least six more games to play.

Last week, he set the program record for the longest run from scrimmage with a 92-yard burst from UTSA’s own five yard line.

Congratulations, Jarveon.
