Kapri Bibbs is the first Ram to earn Walter Camp national honors
Nov. 10, 2013
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Colorado State running back Kapri Bibbs has been named the Walter Camp Foundation National Offensive Player of the Week, presented by Generation UCAN, on Sunday morning after his record-setting performance vs. Nevada.
Bibbs, a native of Plainfield, Ill., rushed for a school-record 312 yards on 30 carries (10.4 avg.) and four touchdowns, which tied a program best, propelling the Rams to a 38-17 victory over the Wolf Pack. The previous single-game rushing record was held by Tony Alford in 1989. Alford rushed for 310 yards on 28 carries at Utah on Oct. 28.
Bibbs, who made his fourth-career start on Saturday, rushed for the second-most yards among FBS rushers in 2013, and the most by a running back nationally. Northern Illinois’ QB Jordan Lynch rushed for 316 yards on Oct. 19 at Central Michigan.
The redshirt-sophomore running back broke off touchdown runs of 1, 28, 59 and 85 yards. His 85-yard touchdown was the third-longest rush in CSU history and the longest since Cecil Sapp’s 89-yarder at Air Force on Nov. 11, 2000. It was the sixth-longest run nationally and the longest in the Mountain West.
In the process, Bibbs crossed the 1,000-yard plateau and now has 1,148 rushing yards on the year, good for 10th-most in program history and eighth-most in the NCAA this year. With three games remaining, Bibbs needs 141 rushing yards to set the CSU sophomore single-season rushing record, currently held by Kyle Bell, who rushed for 1,288 yards in 2005.
Additionally, he set a Colorado State rushing record scoring three touchdowns in four consecutive games. On the year, Bibbs has five games with three touchdowns which is also a program record. Bibbs leads the nation in total touchdowns and rushing touchdowns, with 19, and has an FBS leading 114 points.
Bibbs is the first CSU player to earn Walter Camp Foundation National Offensive Player of the Week honors.
This is the 10th year that the Walter Camp Football Foundation will honor one offensive and one defensive player as its national Football Bowl Subdivision player of the week during the regular season. Recipients are selected by a panel of national media members and administered by the Foundation.
