Edgerrin James

On this date in 1998, Edgerrin James ran for a team record 299 yards to lead the Hurricanes to a 49-45 victory over the #3 ranked UCLA Bruins in front of 46,819 at the Orange Bowl. James’ 39 carries also tied a single game team record for rushing attempts set by Ottis Anderson against back in 1978.

  1. That was one of the five greatest games I witnessed at the old OB. Edge was on fire, and watching the team carry Scott Covington off the field afterwards was kind of hilarious in hindsight.
