McFadden rushes for SEC record

Heisman Trophy candidate Darren McFadden ran for an SEC-record 323 yards Saturday night, helping Arkansas to a 48-36 win over No. 23 South Carolina. McFadden ran for a touchdown and also threw for one. "Darren McFadden gave it his all. He is like another Barry Sanders," said Razorbacks coach Houston Nutt, who was on the staff at Oklahoma State when Sanders on the Heisman in 1988. "The bigger the game, the better (McFadden) plays, and that is why he deserves the Heisman."

Running that much in one game a lifetime for some players. To put this into perspective, McFadden ran only 4.8 miles less on Saturday than Ryan Shay did during the Olympic marathon qualifier.
