Vandy RB Ralph Webb sets school record for career rushing yards
Vanderbilt has a new career rushing leader.
Ralph Webb broke the program’s career rushing record on Saturday night as the Commodores battled Tennessee, surpassing former leader Zac Stacy as the program’s top ball carrier.
Webb came into the final game of the season needing just 27 yards to re-write the record books for the Commodores. He eclipsed the mark with a 17-yard run that gave him 3,152 yards for his career.
Stacy set the record in 2012 when he toted the ball for 3,143 yards for his career.
Webb came into Saturday’s game against Tennessee as the SEC’s fifth-most productive ball-carrier, rushing for 1,058 yards and 10 TDs on the season. He was averaging 5.1 yards per carry.
Setting a new school record is a pretty exciting accomplishment, but it has to be even sweeter to set that mark when it comes against your rival.
