Dumas’ 143 rushing yards are the most by a Lobo freshman since Cole Gautsche rushed for 149 yards as a quarterback against Wyoming in 2012. It was the most rushing yards by a freshman running back since DonTrell Moore rushed for 179 yards against Wyoming in 2002. Dumas has 662 rushing yards on the season which is the most by a Lobo freshman running back since Moore did it in 2002.
“I’m pretty sure you all know that coming out of high school, I led all of Texas in rushing,” said Dumas. “So, it’s nothing new to me. This rushing thing has been a thing that’s part of my history. As I grow, I’m going to start putting up 200, possibly 300-yard games. You know, I’m definitely going to keep growing from here.”
The 3-7 Lobos are at 6-4 Boise State on Saturday.
