WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Octavias McKoy ran for 455 yards, setting a new NCAA record for all-divisions, as Division III Western Connecticut State beat Worcester State 55-35 on Saturday.
McKoy scored five touchdowns in a game for the third time this season and broke the rushing record previously held by Dante Brown of Marietta College. Brown ran for 441 on Oct. 5, 1996 against Baldwin-Wallace.
McKoy, a senior, scored from 15, 1, 41, 53 and 71 yards out and now has 23 TDs on the season.
LaDainian Tomlinson holds the FBS record with 406 yards for Texas Christian against UTEP on Nov. 20, 1999.
