SB Nation's Roll Bama Roll tracks Mark Ingram as he inches closer to breaking long-held Alabama records:
Last Saturday's outing now puts Ingram 872 yards away from breaking Shaun Alexander's rushing yardage record and pushes Ingram up to #5 on the all time list passing Bobby Marlow and Dennis Riddle. #22's first two outings of the year have been so stellar that he's now dropped the average needed to 96.8 yards per game (the average needed has dropped 20 yards after two games.) Breaking the yardage record is still not a cakewalk by any measure, but certainly attainable for a back of Ingram's stature.
On the TD front, Ingram now trails Alexander by nine rushing TDs. With at least nine games in hand, Ingram will need one rushing TD per game going forward to break Alexander's rushing TD record.
