Penn State’s Silas Redd had an October to remember.
The sophomore running back from Norwalk, Conn., led the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) with 703 rushing yards in October.
His 137 yards on a career-high 30 carries in Saturday’s 10-7 win over Illinois gave him his fifth straight game with more than 100 yards on the ground. The last time a Nittany Lion achieved that feat? Curtis Enis, with eight straight 100-yard rushing games, in 1997.
Redd’s 111.78 rushing yards per game ranks 12th in the nation. That mark ranks second in the conference behind only Iowa's Marcus Coker.
