The Oregon Ducks set a new team high single season rushing touchdown record Saturday. They did so against a Stanford defense that was allowing only 106 yards per game. Last year’s record of 32 rushing touchdowns was surpassed Saturday; the new record now stands at 35.

Oregon has two games remaining and the new record may just climb more.

For the sixth time this season, the Ducks surpassed the 300 yard rushing mark, making them the Pac-10’s most prolific rushing team—they rank No. 5 nationally.

By season’s end, the Ducks could have two 1,000 yards rushers in Jeremiah Johnson and LeGarrette Blount. Johnson currently has 868 rushing yards and Blount has 768. Blount, with 14 touchdowns to date, is likely to surpass the single season touchdown mark of 15 set by Saladin McCullough in 1996.
