J.K. Dobbins has the top rushing season in Ohio State history.

With a first-quarter carry in Saturday's College Football Playoff showdown against Clemson, Dobbins passed Eddie George's single-season rushing record of 1,927 which he set during the 1995 season.

The junior needed one more game than George's 13 in 1995, but Dobbins still hit the mark in far fewer carries. George reached his record 1,927 yards after 328 rushes to average 5.87 yards per carry while Dobbins did it in just 289 carries.

Dobbins finishes the season with 2,003 yards on 301 carries, averaging 6.65 yards per carry. He is the only running back in Ohio State history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a single season.
