After rushing for 138 yards on 27 carries in Oregon's 26-20 victory over Washington, sophomore RB Royce Freeman is to set a number of single-season records at Oregon.

Freeman has rushed for over 100 yards in five of Oregon's seven games this season and is averaging 142.4 yards per game this season, which ranks fourth in the FBS. On the season, Freeman has rushed for 997 yards and nine touchdowns.

If Oregon is able to make a bowl game — the Ducks need two more wins to become eligible — Freeman would have a chance to set Oregon's single-season rushing record, which is held by LaMike James. 

James rushed for 1,805 yards in 2011 and averaged 150.4 yards per game on the ground.
