Highlights[edit]

  • Nov. 4, 1989: Anthony Thompson scores his 60th career touchdown to set a then NCAA Division I-A record.
  • Nov. 11, 1989: The NCAA single-game rushing record of 357 yards, held by Rueben Mayes and Mike Pringle is broken as Anthony Thompson rushes for 377 yards in a 45-17 victory at Wisconsin. This stood as a Big Ten Conference record for 25 years until it was broken by Melvin Gordon (Wisconsin) in 2014.[2] As of 2014, it still stands as the school record.[3] Thompson also scores four touchdowns on the day.
  • Nov. 24, 1989: Anthony Thompson was the top vote-getter and the only repeat selection on the 1989 Walter Camp All-America team. Thompson finished the season with 1,793 yards and 24 touchdowns.
