Spiller is third in the nation in all-purpose running yards this week with 188 yards per game. He established the ACC single season record for all-purpose running in the win over Virginia that clinched the ACC Atlantic Division title this past Saturday. He now has 2066 all-purpose yards this season, breaking the record of 2054 by Thomas Jones of Virginia in 1999.
Spiller is the only player in the nation with a touchdown in every game this year. He has scored 15 touchdowns altogether, seven rushing, four receiving, three on kickoff returns and one on a punt return. He has also thrown a touchdown pass. He has 894 yards rushing, 421 yards receiving, 543 yards on kickoff returns and 208 on punt returns.
Spiller is the first Clemson running back to be named a finalist for the Doak Walker Award. The last Clemson player to be named a finalist for any award is Gaines Adams, who was a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Award in 2006.
