Arizona's Carey named finalist for nation's top running back award
The award is given annually to the nation's best running back, and Carey has a strong case for the honor. He's rushed for 100 yards in 14 consecutive games, the longest active streak in college football, and is second in the country with 155.9 yards per game.
Carey is coming off a huge performance in Arizona's 42-16 win over Oregon. He had 206 yards and four touchdowns to help lead the Wildcats to the upset. In the game, he set school records with 3,913 career rushing yards and 49 career touchdowns, 45 of which came on the ground which is also an Arizona record.
The other two finalists are Boston College's Andre Williams and Washington's Bishop Sankey. It's likely to come down to Carey and Williams, who has rushed for 2,073 yards and 16 touchdowns already this season. He needs 556 yards in his final two games, which are against Syracuse and a to-be-determined bowl opponent, to break Barry Sanders' single season mark set in 1988.
