Penn State game added. 15 straight over 100 for Mo.
Figured it out. I was using Sports Reference and in the past bowl game stats were not counted towards career stats in college football so they don't have Thompson's 136 yards in the Liberty bowl listed.The Gophersports website says that Thompson had 4,654 career rushing yards. Mo still needs 128 yards to pass DT - and 103 to pass Cobb for the single-season record.

So I guess Mo still has a little work to do in order to get to the all-time top spot in rushing yards. Will adjust the main post to reflect those yards.
Yeah, I thought it was kind of strange as well but chalked it up to how the game ended overshadowing the accomplishment. little surprised that hasn't been adjusted on sites like sports reference, guess I don't know if those stats officially count for the older guys now or if those are still not factored into career yards.I was wondering why there hadn't been any mention of Mo breaking that record in any of the post-game stuff, but yeah that makes sense. Looking forward to seeing him break it against the Badgers!
It helps that by selling out to stop Mo, Wisc had to effectively sacrifice the whole game.100 yard game streak finally ends. And in a rare game, Mo didn't find the endzone. But we are leaving Madison with the Axe and I can guarantee Mo could care less that his streak is over.
Still a little short of taking over the top spot in nearly all categories. If he plays in the bowl game he should get enough yards to get it done.
