Arizona State sophomore running back Eno Benjamin broke the school’s single-season rushing record in Pac-10/12 history on Saturday against UCLA.

Benjamin passed Ryan Torain on the Sun Devils’ first touchdown drive of the second half, which was capped off by a 1-yard Benjamin run.

Benjamin had 1,262 rushing yards for the season following that drive. Torain had 1,229 in 2006.

ASU joined the Pac-10 in 1978, so he’s got the most rushing yards in school history over a 40-year span.

With two regular season games left and a likely bowl game, Benjamin could easily add to his record-breaking season.
