All Iowa State fans have heard the stories about Troy Davis and his back-to-back 2,000 yard rushing seasons. While Iowa State’s all-time leading rusher was certainly adept at piling up yards, he was just as good at putting the ball in the end zone.
Davis ran for 36 touchdowns during his career in Ames, which remains the school record for career rushing scores. Davis broke Dexter Green’s record of 34 touchdowns while running for 21 scores in 1996.
That 1996 campaign, in which Davis ran for 2,185 yards, was the follow up to a 1995 season that saw him run for 2,010 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Davis’ 38 career touchdowns is also the Iowa State record. He’s the school’s all-time leader in 100-yard rushing games with 21 and 200-yard rushing games with nine.
Needless to say, you find Troy Davis’ name quite a bit in the Iowa State record books.
