Clemson RB Etienne sets ACC rushing mark
Clemson running back Travis Etienne became the all-time leading rusher in Atlantic Coast Conference history on Saturday.
Etienne ran for 16 yards on the final play of the third quarter against Boston College, giving him 4,612 rushing yards for his career.
He surpassed Ted Brown, who gained 4,602 rushing yards for North Carolina State from 1975-78.
A 5-foot-10 senior from Jennings, La., Etienne set the mark on his 616th career carry for the Tigers — an average of nearly 7.5 yards per carry.
He ran for more than 1,600 yards each of the past two seasons and was named ACC Player of the Year both years.
