    //Davidson set the Division I record for single game rushing yards for the second time this season on Saturday against San Diego.

    But this time the Wildcats lost. Yes, really. Davidson rushed for a ridiculous 789 yards — breaking a record (768 yards vs. Kansas) set by Oklahoma in 1988 — and lost 56-52.


    In the first quarter alone, Davidson had three rushing touchdowns of at least 80 yards — a 94-yarder from Dugger, a 90-yarder from Wicks and an 80-yard burst from Brown.

    In all, the Wildcats went for 789 yards on 73 attempts — a 10.8-yard average — and seven touchdowns. But it wasn’t enough to win.\\

    And blowing a 31-7 lead while at it.
