TreVeyon Henderson.

TreVeyon Henderson made the most out of his first start.

In just his first collegiate start, Ohio State's five-star running back set a new single-game freshman rushing record.

With a 52-yard touchdown rush to close the third quarter, Henderson notched 243 rushing yards on the game, surpassing the record of 239 yards set by Archie Griffin against North Carolina in 1972.

A big chunk of that yardage came on two plays as Henderson broke a pair of third-quarter touchdowns, one going for 48 yards and one going for 52.

Henderson finished the game with 277 rushing yards on 24 attempts and was responsible for Ohio State's first three touchdowns on the day. His game total is good for the third-most rushing yards in program history behind only Trey Sermon's 331 yards last season and Eddie George's 314 in 1995.
