Florida State running back Treshaun Ward is the ACC’s rushing leader after 3 weeks.

Ward is having a special season for Florida State and he proved that in Friday’s win over Louisville. He had 126 rushing yards on 10 rushing attempts against Louisville. When quarterback Jordan Travis left the game early with an injury, the offense needed help and Ward stepped up.

Through 3 games, he is tied for the lead in rushing yards in the ACC. Ward has 302 rushing yards, which is tied with Pitt’s Israel Abanikanda. Ward has 24 less rushing attempts than Abanikanda. Ward is averaging 7.55 yards per carry in 3 games. He has been a workhorse for the Seminoles.

He has 2 rushing touchdowns, which is the same as 17 other players in the ACC for rushing touchdowns. Ward rushed for more than 100 yards in 2 games against Duquesne and Louisville. The game against LSU was the only game this season that he rushed for under 100 yards.

Ward, a sophomore, rushed for 515 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 81 carries in 2021. Last season, he led the ACC in yards per carry with 6.36 yards per carry. If he continues this streak, he could lead the conference for a second consecutive season.

Florida State will look to see more of the same from Ward in Week 4 against Boston College.
