NOTES
- Minimum 100 yards except when sorting by touchdowns.
- Current season players listed in bold.
- Ties go to the most recent occurrence.
- As of 10/22/2016, several inconsistencies/errors were found in the 10/17/2016 Records & Stats Supplement 100-Yard Rushers section (pp. 9-13). Given the data I have access to (previous media guides, newspaper articles, and published season yardage totals), this list should be the most accurate available.

Data Issues

  • In the 10/14/2017 Stats Supplement, one of George Thomas' 100 yard rushing games is shown being at Kansas on 11/20/1948 (15-119). In a previous publication, he is credited with 4 rushing TD against Kansas on 10/15/1949. However, according to the newspaper account from 10/16/1949, he was 15-119 with 3 touchdowns and 1 reception for 17 yards and a touchdown. In the newspaper for the 1948 game, it shows Thomas with 4 attempts for 27 yards and only 1 touchdown.
