Kentucky junior running back Chris Rodriguez is having a special season for the Wildcats.

Through six games, Rodriguez has totaled 759 rushing yards, which leads the league by 84 yards.

Rodriguez is on pace to break Kentucky’s single-season rushing record held by Moe Williams. Williams set the mark with 1,600 yards during the 1995 season.

Rodriguez is currently on pace for 1,164 yards rushing this season, a pace that would see him break the record during UK’s bowl game if he stays on the current rate.

The junior needs 17 yards vs. Georgia to have his highest single-season total at Kentucky. He eclipsed the 2,000-yard mark vs. LSU last week, becoming the tenth player in program history to reach that milestone.
