Lynn Bowden Jr. breaks Johnny Manziel’s all-time bowl rushing record for a quarterback

In news that should come as a shock to no one, Lynn Bowden Jr. broke yet another record in Kentucky’s 37-30 victory in the Belk Bowl.

In a 233-yard, two touchdown rushing performance against Virginia Tech, Bowden broke the all-time record for most rushing yards by a quarterback in a bowl game.

Bowden broke Johnny Manziel’s record of 229 yards in Texas A&M’s 41-13 Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma back in 2013. On top of the individual bowl record, the Kentucky playmaker also finished second all-time behind Cam Newton in total rushing yards by an SEC quarterback in a season.

For the record, Virginia Tech was allowing 123 rush yards per game going into today’s matchup. Unfortunately for them, Lynn Bowden happened.

Come see about it.

    Will someone draft him?

      If he isn’t drafted, all 32 teams are completely out of their minds. He’s versatile which has a lot of value on smaller NFL rosters and obviously has great vision and football IQ. He probably still needs polishing as a WR, but I don’t think that would be a deal breaker for anyone.
