One week after Gordon was the talk of college football after breaking former TCU great LaDainian Tomlinson's 15-year-old, single-game NCAA rushing record with a 408-yard romp in a victory over Nebraska last weekend, the Oklahoma freshman Perine dropped Gordon into second place on the all-time list with a 427-yard effort during Saturday's 44-7 whipping of Kansas University at The Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

Seriously, folks, Self wants 40-plus points |
