It's been a standout season for Florida State's running back Dalvin Cook-- although he only needed a little more than half of it to etch his name into the annals of FSU history yet again. In the second quarter of Saturday night's game at Georgia Tech, Cook went over the 1,000-yard mark, a feat he's now accomplished in each of his first two years as a Seminole.
It's the tenth time in history that a 'Nole has amassed a four-digit rushing total, and just the second time that FSU has done so for three straight seasons. Warrick Dunn went over 1,000 yards thrice from 1994-1996, and Devonta Freeman began the current run in 2013 before Cook continued it last year. Cook is the only Florida State running back other than Dunn to go over the century mark more than once.
Cook is the fastest to the mark in Florida State history, gained the 1,000-yard plateau in seven games. The previous record had been nine games.
The next record within Cook's grasp is the FSU single-season rushing record of 1,242 yards, established by Dunn in 1995. Cook also went over 2,00 career yards vs. GT.
