Ryan Williams ranks fifth nationally in rushing yards per game, trailing only Ryan Matthews (Fresno State), Toby Gerhart (Stanford), Donald Buckram (UTEP) and Dion Lewis (Pitt).
Williams finished the regular season with 1,538 yards rushing, the ACC freshman record. It is also the fourth-highest total in ACC history. He needs 110 yards in the bowl game to break the single season Virginia Tech record held by Kevin Jones.
His 1,538 yards are also the eighth highest by a freshman in NCAA history. His 20 overall touchdowns is also an ACC freshman record, and his 19 rushing touchdowns ties the ACC record for any player, regardless of class. Don McCauley had 19 rushing touchdowns in 1970, and Georgia Tech's Robert Lavette equaled that mark in 1982.
