Tyrell Fenroy scored three touchdowns and broke 1,000 yards rushing for the fourth consecutive season to help Louisiana beat Florida International 49-20 on Saturday.
Fenroy ran for 81 yards on 22 carries, which put him over 1,000 yards on the year for the fourth straight time -- a feat only six other players in Division I-A history have done. The Louisiana tailback now leads all active NCAA players with 4,322 career rushing yards.
The Golden Panthers (3-5, 2-2 Sun Belt Conference) jumped out to a 7-0 lead on T.Y. Hilton's opening kickoff that went 90 yards for a touchdown. After Michael Desormeaux, who was 13 of 19 for 216 yards and two touchdowns, connected with Ladarius Green on a 6-yard score, Julian Reams' 1-yard run put Florida International up 14-7 after the first.
Fenroy scored from 3 and 4 yards away in the second, and Louisiana's Gerren Blount returned a fumble for a score to help the Ragin' Cajuns (5-3, 4-0) build a 35-14 lead at halftime. The record-setting tailback would score again on a 1-yard run to put the Ragin' Cajuns ahead 49-14 after three quarters.
Fenroy's three rushing touchdowns allowed him to capture the Sun Belt Conference career rushing touchdown record with his 42nd career score. It was his fourth, three-touchdown game of the season and eighth of his career. Fenroy is now up to 44 career rushing touchdowns leaving him three shy of Brian Mitchell's school record.
Louisiana's defense pitched a shutout for 44-plus minutes, after FIU scored with 53 seconds left in the first quarter, and limited the Golden Panthers to 270 total yards for the entire contest.
