Thursday Trivia: Second Leading Rusher In The Nation

The correct answer to the last trivia question "What year was the first time that BYU beat Oregon by overcoming a double digit deficit?" is 1978. Jim McMahon came off the bench and brought BYU back from a 16-3 second half deficit to win 17-16.

On to this week's question.

Yesterday, the Flashback pointed out that Luke Staley was second in the nation in total rushing yards in 2001. That was the second time that a BYU back had finished the season second in total rushing yards. Therefore, this week’s trivia question asks:
Who was the first BYU player to finish the season second in total rushing yards?
Leave your answer in the comments section. Come back next week when the answer is revealed and a new trivia question is asked.
