Rushing Yardage, Career

Williams entered the season with 1,577 yards on 349 carries. He's on pace to more than double that total this year alone, having averaged 147 yards a game through the first eight games of this season. AW began the season 24th on the school's career rushing yards list. He's now in sole possession of 8th place. At his current 147 yards/game clip, Williams can finish as high as 5th on this list ... but is unlikely to best Troy Stradford's 3,504 career rushing yards.

1. Montel Harris (2008-11) - 787 - 3,735 - 27 - 4.7
2. Derrick Knight (2000-03) - 708 - 3,725 - 25 - 5.3
3. Mike Cloud (1995-98) - 614 - 3,597 - 25 - 5.9
4. Troy Stradford (1982-86) - 658 - 3,504 - 27 - 5.3
5. William Green (1999-01) - 501 - 2,974 - 33 - 5.9
6. Andre Callendar (2004-07) - 637 - 2,971 - 17 - 4.6
7. Mike Esposito (1972-74) - 526 - 2,759 - 24 - 5.3
8. Andre Williams (2010-pres.) - 565 - 2,738 - 20 - 4.8

Rushing Attempts, Career

With 216 carries through eight games, Williams has worked his way up to seventh on this list. Averaging 27 carries a game, Williams can climb as high as third on the career rushing attempts list behind only Montel Harris and Derrick Knight. Second behind Harris is within reach with a bowl game.

1. Montel Harris (2008-11) - 787 - 40 games
2. Derrick Knight (2000-03) - 708 - 46
3. Troy Stradford (1982-86) - 658 - 44
4. Andre Callendar (2004--07) - 637 - 48
5. Mike Cloud (1995-98) - 615 - 45
6. L.V. Whitworth (2004-07) - 588 - 45
7. Andre Williams (2010-pres.) - 565 - 37

Rushing Attempts, Season

Williams is on pace to carry the ball 324 times this season, which would break Derrick Knight's 2003 record of 321 carries in 13 games. That doesn't include a possible bowl game, which would likely put even more distance between AW and Knight.

1. Derrick Knight (2003) - 321 carries in 13 games
2t. Montel Harris (2009) - 308 carries in 13
2t. Mike Cloud (1998) - 308 carries in 11
4. Montel Harris (2010) - 269 carries in 12
5. William Green (2010) - 265 carries in 11
6. Omari Walker (1996) - 261 carries in 12
7. Mike Esposito (1973) - 254 carries in 11
8. Derrick Knight (2002) - 253 carries in 13
9. Glen Capriola (1976) - 240 carries in 11
10. Chuckie Dukes (1992) - 238 carries in 11
11. Keith Barnette (1974) - 233 carries in 11
12. Fred Willis (1970) - 223 carries in 10
13. Cedric Washington (1999) - 222 carries in 11
14. Darnell Campbell (1993) - 221 in 11
15. Troy Stradford (1986) - 218 in 11
16. Andre Williams (2013) - 216 in 8

Rushing Attempts, Game

Williams already owns the school's single-game record for rushing attempts, having carried the ball 42 times in Boston College's 2010 victory at Syracuse.

Rushing Yardage, Season

With 147 yards per game average, Williams is on pace to shatter the school's single-season rushing record. Williams would clear the school record by 38 yards (1,764 yards over 12 games) and crush it with a bowl game (1,911 yards over 13). If AW doesn't gain another yard this season, he'd still finish 10th on the single season rushing yardage list.

1. Mike Cloud (1998) - 1,726 in 11 games
2. Derrick Knight (2003) - 1,721 in 13 
3. William Green (2001) - 1,559 in 11
4. Montel Harris (2009) - 1,457 in 13
5. Derrick Knight (2002) - 1,432 in 13
6. Chuckie Dukes (1992) - 1,387 in 11
7. Mike Esposito (1973) - 1,289 in 11
8. Omari Walker (1996) - 1,199 in 12
9. Troy Stradford (1986) - 1,188 in 11
10. Andre Williams (2013) - 1,176 in 8

Rushing Yards, Game

Williams came oh-so-close to breaking this record in the Army game. On his final carry, he lost a yard and would have to settle for second. If Boston College doesn't spell him this weekend, Williams could threaten this record playing against the nation's worst rushing defense (allowing 312.11 yards per game on the ground).

1. Montel Harris (2009 vs. N.C. State) - 264 yards
2. Andre Williams (2013 vs. Army) - 263

Rushing Yardage, Play

Williams owns this school record as well with his 99-yard rushing touchdown last season at Army. AW likes running the ball against Army.

Rushing Touchdowns, Career

With 20 touchdowns in his career, Williams is currently tied for 11th on the school's all-time list. At 1.25 TD/game this season, Williams is projected to finish tied for sixth on the all-time list. Every rushing TD scored from here on out will see Williams continue to climb up this list.

1. Keith Barnette (1973-75) - 34
2. William Green (1999-2001) - 33
3t. Montel Harris (2008-11) - 27
3t. Darnell Campbell (1991-93) - 27
3t. Troy Stradford (1982-86) - 27
6t. Derrick Knight (2000-03) - 25
6t. Mike Cloud (1995-98) - 25
8. Mike Esposito (1972-74) - 24
9. Mike Holovak (1940-42) - 23
10. Dan Conway (1976-79) - 21
11t. Chuck Darling (1922-24) - 20
11t. Al Weston (1926-28) - 20
11t. Andre Williams (2010-pres.) - 20

Rushing Touchdowns, Season

While Williams has doubled his career rushing TD total this season alone, he's still on the outside looking in at the school's single-season rushing touchdown record list. Another TD would put Williams in a four-way tie for 11th with Derrick Knight, Fred Willis and Mike Holovak. At his current average, Williams could finish as high as third on this list. Doubt he'll be able to catch Keith Barnette though.

1. Keith Barnette (1974) - 22
2. Darnell Campbell (1993) - 19
3t. William Green (2001) - 15
3t. Mike Esposito (1973) - 15
5t. Montel Harris (2009) - 14
5t. William Green (2000) - 14
5t. Mike Cloud (1998) - 14
8. Omari Walker (1996) - 13
9t. Derrick Knight (2002) - 12
9t. Al Weston (1926) - 12
11t. Derrick Knight (2003) - 11
11t. Fred Willis (1970) - 11
11t. Mike Holovak (1940) - 11

Rushing Touchdowns, Game

With five rushing touchdowns in the win over Army, Williams tied Montel Harris (5 TD vs. N.C. State in 2010) for the school's all-time single-game record.

100 Yard Games, Season

Williams is 6-for-8 in 100+ yard games this season. He would need to rush for 100+ in each of the Eagles' last four games (no bowl) to tie the school record set by Mike Cloud in 1998. Williams would take sole possession of the record with 100+ yard performances in the final five games of his career (including a bowl game).

1. Mike Cloud (1998) - 10
2t. Derrick Knight (2003) - 9
2t. William Green (2001) - 9
2t. Chuckie Dukes (1992) - 9 
5t. Montel Harris (2010) - 8
5t. Montel Harris (2009) - 8
5t. Derrick Knight (2002) - 8

100 Yard Games, Career

Williams entered the year with five 100+ yard rushing performances and has added six more this season. He currently ranks tied for seventh on the school's career 100-yard game list. Montel Harris' school record 22 100-yard performances is now safe from Williams' assault on the record books, but Williams can still finish as high as fifth on this list.

1. Montel Harris (2008-11) - 22
2t. Derrick Knight (2003-03) - 18
2t. Mike Cloud (1995-98) - 18
4. Troy Stradford (1982-83) - 17
5. William Green (1999-2001) - 13
6. Chuckie Dukes (1991-92) - 12
7t. Mike Esposito (1972-74) - 11
7t. Andre Williams (2010-pres.) - 11

Consecutive 100 Yard Games

Williams has only been able to string together two straight 100-yard performances all season, streaks broken up in games at USC (38 yards rushing) and at Clemson (70 yards). This is a tough record to topple but if Williams rushes for 100+ yards in each of his final five games (including a bowl), he'll finish tied with Mike Cloud atop this list.

1t. Mike Cloud (1998) - 7
1t. Chuckie Dukes (1992) - 7
3. Montel Harris (2010) - 6
4t. Montel Harris (2009) - 5 
4t. William Green 2001 - 5
6t. David Green (1994) - 4
6t. Fred Willis (1970) - 4 
6t. Troy Stradford (1986) - 4
