Hart becomes Michigan's career rushing leader in first quarter against Eastern Michigan
October 6, 2007
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Mike Hart became Michigan's career rushing leader Saturday against Eastern Michigan.
Hart needed 33 yards to break Anthony Thomas' record of 4,472 yards rushing. The senior surpassed the mark midway through the first quarter, fittingly with shifty moves that have helped him become the nation's active leader in yards rushing.
He started a drive from the Michigan 1 with a 20-yard run, then he later broke Thomas' record by making a defender miss in the backfield and picking up 14 yards.
Thomas, who plays for the Buffalo Bills, played for Michigan from 1997-2000.
*Mike Hart more then impressive in a much less then impressive Michigan win over EMU.
He (Hart) has 929 carries for 4,655 yards and 37 touchdowns on the ground for his career.
