Frank Gore Jr. Has Record-Breaking Game For Southern Miss

Written by Tony Ghaul

Southern Miss RB Frank Gore Jr. had a tremendous season rushing for 1,053 yards and 7 touchdowns, along with 19 receptions for 219 yards. He had a huge game in the Lending Tree Bowl against Rice on Saturday night.

Gore exploded for 329 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns on just 21 carries, helping the Southern Miss defeat Rice by a score of 38-24.

Gore’s 329 rushing yards were the highest single-game mark of a player this season, topping Pittsburgh’s Israel Abanikanda, who ran for 320 yards and 6 touchdowns in Pittsburgh’s 45-29 win over Virginia Tech back on October 8.

Gore also set the all-time mark for rushing yards in a bowl game.
