Fenroy 7th player in NCAA history to amass 4 straight 1,000-yard seasons

Associated Press

LAFAYETTE, La. -- Tyrell Fenroy scored three touchdowns and broke 1,000 yards rushing for the fourth consecutive season to help Louisiana-Lafayette beat Florida International 49-20 on Saturday.

Fenroy ran for 81 yards on 22 carries, which put him over 1,000 yards on the year for the fourth straight time -- a feat only six other players in Division I-A history have done. The Louisiana-Lafayette tailback now leads all active NCAA players with 4,322 career rushing yards.

The Golden Panthers (3-5, 2-2 Sun Belt Conference) jumped out to a 7-0 lead on T.Y. Hilton's opening kickoff that went 90 yards for a touchdown. After Michael Desormeaux, who was 13 of 19 for 216 yards and two touchdowns, connected with Ladarius Green on a 6-yard score, Julian Reams' 1-yard run put Florida International up 14-7 after the first.

Fenroy scored from 3 and 4 yards away in the second, and Lalaf Gerren Blount returned a fumble for a score to help the Ragin' Cajuns (5-3, 4-0) build a 35-14 lead at halftime. The record-setting tailback would score again on a 1-yard run to put the Ragin' Cajuns ahead 49-14 after three quarters.
