Milestone for McLeod

Midway through the third quarter of Saturday's 13-3 win over Brown, Mike McLeod joined some select company when he became just the eighth Football Championship Subdivision player to have 1,000 career rushing attempts.

Carry No. 1,000 was hardly one for the record books, however as McLeod was thrown for a six yard loss. He finished the game with 1,011 career carries. He will not catch current Colgate star Jordan Scott, who has a record 1,191 carries but with 36 carries in his last two collegiate games McLeod would finish four on the FCS career list for rushing attempts.

Although a disappointing and injury-plagued senior season will prevent McLeod from leaving Yale as the Ivy League's all-time leading rusher, his name will be all over the Ivy record book.

Here's where he stands on the Ivy League career lists. Record holder is in parenthesis.
Rushing attempts (all games): 1,011 1st
Rushing attempts (Ivy games): 658 4th (Ed Marinaro, Cornell: 707)
Rushing yards (all games): 4314 5th (Clifton Dawson, Harvard: 4841)

Rushing TDs (Ivy games): 36 2nd (Dawson, Harvard: 39)
