Heidelberg University's Cartel Brooks sets NCAA record with 465 rushing yards

While Ohio State typically gets most of the college football press in the The Buckeye State, for at least one Saturday, the headlines will belong to Division III Heidelberg, a school of about 1,400 students located in the small town of Tiffin. Junior running back Cartel Brooks rushed for an all-division NCAA record 465 yards in the Student Princes' 42-14 win over Baldwin Wallace.

The previous record of 455 rushing yards was set earlier this season by Western Connecticut's Octavias McKoy. The Division I mark is 406 yards, set by TCU's LaDanian Tomlinson in TCU's 52-24 defeat of UTEP on Nov. 20, 1999.

Brooks rushed for three scores (of 81, 41 and 13 yards) in his record-breaking performance. His outburst wasn't a total surprise. On Oct. 19, he set school single-game records for rushing yards and touchdowns by running for 337 yards and five scores. With the victory over the Yellow Jackets, Heidelberg finished the regular season 8-2.

Brooks is a fan of Baylor's offense, according to his Twitter feed, so it's nice to think of his big day as an homage to the crazy numbers that coach Art Briles' Bears have been putting up this season.
