Daniel Porter sets career rushing record

Daniel Porter ran for 199 yards in his final college game to set the school's career rushing record as Louisiana Tech ran over San Jose State en route to a 55-20 victory in front of 15,324 at Joe Aillet Stadium. Porter, who entered the game needing 190 yards to set the record, also ran for three touchdowns in the dominating win for Louisiana Tech. Porter eclipsed Jason Cooper’s 15-year-old record on a 16-yard run with under two minutes left in the game as he finished his career with 3,352 yards.
