BYU Football: Did you know? (Jamaal Williams Rushing Touchdowns)

Brigham Young Cougars running back Jamaal Williams is scoring touchdowns at an impressive rate. He is surging up the charts for rushing touchdowns scored in a season, and not just for freshmen.
Did you know that Jamaal Williams needs to average one rushing touchdown per game in the final three games to finish the season tied for the sixth most rushing touchdowns in a season?
Currently, Williams has 10 rushing touchdowns. An average of one per game the final three games would give him 13. Harvey Unga and Ronney Jenkins both had 13 rushing touchdowns in 2007 and 1998, respectively.

If Williams gets to 14, then he is tied with Curtis Brown (2005), Lakei Heimuli (1985), Waymon Hamilton (1981), and Eldon Fortie (1962) for second most rushing touchdowns in a season.

Luke Staley set the school record with 24 rushing touchdowns in 2001.

With 10 touchdowns now, Williams is tied with Staley’s total as a freshman in 1999, and quarterback Steve Young as a sophomore in 1982.

Over the last three games, Williams has scored five rushing touchdowns.
