Former Bullpup Sankey Leads Nation in Rushing

If Bishop Sankey keeps churning out yards like he did in his first two games of this season, the quiet ball carrier for No. 17 Washington will no longer be a secret tucked away in the Pacific Northwest.

 

Through two games, Washington's junior running back is the national leader in yards rushing per game, averaging 184.5.

 

He started the season with 161 yards and two touchdowns in the Huskies' season opener against Boise State, then followed up last Saturday with a career-best 208 yards on 35 carries in Washington's 34-24 win over Illinois.

 

The 208 yards bettered the 205 he ran for in last December's Las Vegas Bowl against Boise State.
