FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – On this day eight years ago, Robbie Rouse became the all-time leading rusher in Fresno State football history.

It happened on September 15th, 2012.

Rouse had 144 rushing yards and four total touchdowns in the Bulldogs’ 69-14 win over Colorado at Bulldog Stadium. He set the record on a 94-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter.

“It’s not like when I walked into Fresno State I was like, ‘I’m gonna set the all-time rushing record,'” said Rouse, who would go on to finish his Fresno State career with 4,647 rushing yards. “I just knew I wanted to get on the field. And then as I got older, my goals are set higher and higher.

“But this one just happened to come along.”
