Badi was the first since 1919 to top 200 yards in 4 games
Tyler Badie made the most of his first season, appearing in Missouri.
The top player from New Orleans is the only player in the country to run for at least 200 yards in four different games this season. His last game was on Saturday, when he netted 34-209 times in a 31-28 win over South Carolina.
Badi came in the year having never run for more than 79 yards in any of his 34 career games.
He has gone over 200 games against Central Michigan, North Texas, Vanderbilt and the Gamecocks. Interestingly, his highest total dash in his other six games was 81 yards. He ranks first with 123.9 yards per game in the Southeast Conference and fourth nationally.
Badi in his first three years in Missouri was basically a change from rookie Larry Rowntree, now a rookie to the Los Angeles Chargers.
Buddy is among three SEC players since 2000 to score four 200-yard runs in a single season, the first to do so nationally since Chuba Hubbard of Oklahoma State and Jonathan Taylor of Wisconsin in 2019.
Badi has 1,239 flowing yards this season and needs 340 over the next two games and a potential pot to break Devin West’s one-season record of 1,578 in 1998.
Also turning in last week’s 200-yard dash games were UNLV’s Charles Williams, who had a 266 in 38 carry against Hawaii on Saturday and Lou Nichols of central Michigan, who scored 215 in 43 runs against Kent State on Wednesday.
Nichols’ 43 holders have matched Duke’s Matthew Durant for the most matches this season. No one has made more attempts since 2017.
Texas Tech’s Jonathan Garibai kicked the longest yard in FBS this season with his record 62 yards as the time over Iowa State finished 41-38.
The field goal was the longest in a Big 12 team match and was the winner of Garibai’s second game of the season. 32 yards with 18 seconds left gave the Red Raiders a 23-20 win over West Virginia.
Garibai has scored 12 straight field goals, one of which is shy of the record set by Clayton Hatfield in 2018.
Application status options
Appalachian State has intercepted eight passes in its last three games and returned four for touchdowns.
Trey Cobb had two interceptions in a 31-7 win over South Alabama, including a 100-yard pick-six.
Ohio State has also run four interceptions for TDs this season.
The Kansas total in their stunning 57-56 overtime win in the Texas was the Jayhawks’ highest in a road game in program history and the highest anywhere since it shipped 76 against Nebraska in 2007.
It also marks the end of the Kansas Conference Road’s 56-game losing streak. Prior to Saturday, Kansas had not won the Big 12 road game since October 4, 2008, in Iowa.
Vanderbilt has, at 11 games, the longest losing streak on the conference road.
Samford’s Montreal Washington was relegated in a hurry, conceded and came back in his team’s 70-52 loss in Florida. According to ESPN, Washington was the first FCS player since Villanova’s Brian Westbrook in 1998 to achieve the feat against the current Power Five.
A total of 18 Army players made at least one lunge attempt in their 63-10 win over Bucknell. This is the largest number of players on the same FBS team to get carried away in a game since at least 2000, according to Sportradar.
