LaMichael James

RB Oregon, Soph.

Last Week: 26 rushes for 121 yards and three TDs; three receptions for 19 yards in 53-16 win over Washington

Season: 196 rushes for 1,331 yards and 17 TDs; eight receptions for 138 yards and one TD

He's now averaging a nation's-best 166.3 rushing yards per game, which is 16.5 more Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson and nearly 30 yards more than the nearest running back, Oklahoma State's Kendall Hunter. If James can keep up that pace over he'll follow up his Pac-10 freshman record of 1,546 yards by obliterating the conference's sophomore mark of 1,656 yards set by Oregon State's Stephen Jackson in 2002.

Next Up: Saturday at Cal
