Buffalo's Patterson ties FBS record with 8 rushing TDs

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Jaret Patterson ran for eight touchdowns to tie an FBS record and became the fourth major-college football player to have a 400-yard rushing game as Buffalo beat Kent State 70-41 on Saturday.

Patterson was wearing the No. 41 jersey instead of his usual 26, an honor in the Buffalo program. The number was worn by Solomon Jackson, a defensive end for the Bulls who died of a heart-related issue in March 2016 after collapsing during an offseason workout. In 2018, coach Lance Leipold started the tradition of rotating 41 through the team on a weekly basis, giving it to a player as a reward.

"As you know when someone gets that number they get superpowers," Patterson said. "I just wanted to represent that number really well and I think I did that today."
