On a 1st and 10 halfway through the third quarter, needing only 11 yards to become a record-holder, Texas Longhorns junior running back D’Onta Foreman made school history with a 19-yard scamper while breaking several tackles to eclipse 100 yards rushing for the 12th consecutive game, breaking Earl Campbell’s school record.

Foreman’s 12-game streak dates back to least season when he rushed for 157 yards in a 59-20 win over Kansas. A season later, Foreman faced the same opponent and produced a similar result. After ripping off the third-longest run in school history in 2015 with a 93-yard touchdown, Foreman staked a bigger claim at Longhorns history -- the school record for most consecutive 100-yard performances.
The historic season Foreman’s putting forth has not only been noted in the record books, but a pair of the greatest rushers in Longhorns history have started singing his praise.
Foreman is a candidate for the Doak Walker Award, Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and by some accounts, the Heisman Trophy.
