Boom Williams continues to get closer to the top of the UK record book.

With 127 rushing yards against Tennessee, Boom Williams now has 1,025 rushing yards this season, only the seventh player in UK history to surpass 1,000 yards in a season.  The last Cat to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season was Rafael Little back in 2007.

It was the fourth time this year Boom rushed for more than 100 yards, the eleventh of his career.  Today he averaged 7.9 yards per carry and scored a touchdown on the second play of the game.

Boom now has 2,366 career rushing yards, only 252 behind UK’s No. 6 all-time rusher, Derrick Locke.
