WATCH: Dalvin Cook breaks Florida State's single-season rushing record

Published Nov. 14, 2015 12:54 p.m. ET

You wouldn’t expect it to happen any other way.

On Saturday, Florida State running back Dalvin Cook broke the school’s single-season rushing record with a 13-yard touchdown run in the first quarter of the No. 16 Seminoles' 34-17 victory over N.C. State.

The sophomore running back entered the game 12 yards away from Warrick Dunn’s record of 1,242 yards set in 1995.

Cook established the record on his fourth attempt of the game, which resulted in a touchdown and a 7-3 lead.

After his record-setting run, Cook went off to the sideline with a lower leg injury, but managed to come back into the game in style. The 6-0, 203-pound RB took a handoff from Sean Maguire, who entered the game in the second quarter after Everett Golson committed his third turnover, and rumbled 30 yards for his second touchdown of the game. The score cut the Wolfpack’s lead to 17-14 with 5:17 left in the half. He would finish the game with 138 yards and two scores on 22 carries.
