Rushing Yardage, Career

Williams did just enough over his final two games (29 yards vs. Syracuse, 75 vs. Arizona) to set a new school career rushing yardage mark of 3,739. That barely edged out Montel Harris (3,735 yards) and Derrick Knight (3,725). Pretty remarkable for a back that had previously never run for more than 584 yards a season heading into this year.

1. Andre Williams (2010-13) - 704 - 3,739 - 28 - 5.3
2. Montel Harris (2008-11) - 787 - 3,735 - 27 - 4.7
3. Derrick Knight (2000-03) - 708 - 3,725 - 25 - 5.3
4. Troy Stradford (1982-86) - 658 - 3,504 - 27 - 5.3
5. William Green (1999-01) - 501 - 2,974 - 33 - 5.9

Rushing Attempts, Career

Williams barely misses placing second on this list, finishing his career with 704 carries in 42 games. That's four less carries than Derrick Knight (2000-03) and 83 less than Montel Harris' mark of 787.

1. Montel Harris (2008-11) - 787 - 40 games
2. Derrick Knight (2000-03) - 708 - 46

Andre Williams now owns the school's single-season rushing attempt record, registering 355 carries in 2013.

1. Andre Williams (2013) - 355 in 13 games
2. Derrick Knight (2003) - 321 in 13
3. Montel Harris (2009) - 308 in 13
3t. Mike Cloud (1998) - 308 in 11
5. Montel Harris (2010) - 269 in 12

1t. Andre Williams (2010 vs. Syracuse) - 42
3t. Montel Harris (2009 vs. Maryland) - 41
3t. Fred Willis (1970 vs. Pittsburgh) - 41
5. Three tied at 39

Rushing Yardage, Season

Williams has put 451 yards between he and second place. With the Eagles likely to move to more multi-RB looks going forward, this record may stand for quite some time.

1. Andre Williams (2013) - 2,177 in 13 games
2. Mike Cloud (1998) - 1,726 in 11
3. Derrick Knight (2003) - 1,721 in 13
4. William Green (2001) - 1,559 in 11
5. Montel Harris (2009) - 1,457 in 13

Rushing Yards, Game

Andre Williams owns four of the top five single-game rushing performances in school history. All four occurred during the 2013 season.

1. Andre Williams (2013 vs. N.C. State) - 339 yards
2. Andre Williams (2013 vs. N.M. State) - 295
3. Montel Harris (2009 vs. N.C. State) - 264
4t. Andre Williams (2013 vs. Army) - 263
4t. Andre Williams (2013 vs. Maryland) - 263

Rushing Yardage, Play

3. Dave Bennett (1968 vs. Navy) - 87
4. Mike Cloud (1998 vs. Temple) - 85
5. Emiddio Petrarca (1955 vs. Brandeis) - 84

Rushing Touchdowns, Career

Williams two touchdowns in his final two games pushes him to third on the school's all-time list with 28; behind Keith Barnette (34) and William Green (33).

1. Keith Barnette (1973-75) - 34
2. William Green (1999-2001) - 33
3 Andre Williams (2010-13) - 28
3t. Montel Harris (2008-11) - 27
3t. Darnell Campbell (1991-93) - 27
3t. Troy Stradford (1982-86) - 27

Rushing Touchdowns, Season

Two more TDs wasn't enough to move up this list as Williams will finish third on the school's all-time rushing touchdown list. Keith Barnette's 1974 mark of 22 rushing touchdowns remains the standard for Boston College.

1. Keith Barnette (1974) - 22
2. Darnell Campbell (1993) - 19
3. Andre Williams (2013) - 18
4. William Green (2001) - 15
5. Mike Esposito (1973) - 15

1t. Andre Williams (2013 vs. Army) - 5
1t. Montel Harris (2009 vs. N.C. State) - 5
3t. Ten tied with 4

100 Yard Games, Season

Williams finishes 9-of-13 in 100+ yard games this season. That's good for a four-way tie with Derrick Knight (2003), William Green (2001) and Chuckie Dukes (1992). Mike Cloud's mark of 10-100+ yard games stands as the best season in school history.

1. Mike Cloud (1998) - 10
2t. Derrick Knight (2003) - 9
2t. William Green (2001) - 9
2t. Chuckie Dukes (1992) - 9
2t. Andre Williams (2013) - 9

100 Yard Games, Career

Williams surpasses William Green with 14 career 100-yard games. That places Williams fifth on the school's all-time list, which is where he'll end his career. One of the few records that Williams won't break during his time on the Heights.

1. Montel Harris (2008-11) - 22
2t. Derrick Knight (2003-03) - 18
2t. Mike Cloud (1995-98) - 18
4. Troy Stradford (1982-83) - 17

1t. Chuckie Dukes (1992) - 7
3. Montel Harris (2010) - 6
