TUSCON, Ariz. – Utah Utes star running back Zack Moss added two more reasons why he is the greatest running back in school history.

In the first quarter against Arizona, Moss needed 45 yards to reach 1,000 yards on the season and he did that by the second offensive drive. It’s the third straight season that Moss has rushed for over 1,000 yards.

It’s the first time in school history that a Utah football running back has three 1,000 rushing yard seasons in a career.

The next record was when he had his 649th rushing attempt of his career. He passed Tony Lindsay, who had 648 rushing attempts in his career from 1977-80. In the first half against Arizona, Moss racked up 136 yards on 21 carries. He also caught three passes for 28 yards.

The senior holds the following records:

  • Most career 100-yard rushing games
  • Rushing touchdowns
  • Rushing yards
  • Total touchdowns
  • Most 1,000 yard rushing seasons
  • Rushing attempts

Utah had a 14-0 lead over Arizona at the halftime break with Brant Kuithe running in a three-yard touchdown and Tyler Huntley found Demari Simpkins for a three-yard score.
