He's scored touchdowns four different ways this season. He has 12 rushing touchdowns, a 70-yard catch for a touchdown, two passing touchdowns and the 92-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. With 1,303 rushing yards, he's just 84 yards behind the Arkansas single-season record set by Madre Hill in 1995.
McFadden, a finalist for the Doak Walker Award as the nation's top running back, said it would be a "great honor" to break the Arkansas rushing record.
But an even greater honor would be bringing a first-ever SEC championship back to Fayetteville.
The next two defenses (LSU and Florida) will be the toughest two McFadden has faced all season. The Gators are allowing just 71.8 yards per game on the ground and the Tigers 74.6 yards. Neither defense is giving up more than 2.7 yards per carry.
McFadden's teammates say these are the types of games he lives for.
"He runs hard, and you'll see it go to another level now," Arkansas cornerback Chris Houston said. "If you try to tackle him one-on-one, it's not going to be too pretty for you."
