Benson struggled with his ball security on Saturday, fumbling twice. However, he recovered nicely after his second fumble midway through the fourth quarter. On his next carry, Benson ran past the Pittsburgh defense for a 47-yard touchdown to reach the historic mark.
“That big run I had, it was an amazing feeling,” Benson said. “Got a little load off of me.”
The Yellow Jackets finished the game with a total of 436 rushing yards.
