Trey Benson had an insane performance against the Virginia Tech Hokies in Week 6. The running back went for 200 yards on just 11 carries, averaging a whopping 18.2 yards per carry. The back found the end zone twice and also caught 3 passes.

Benson’s big day led the Seminoles to a convincing 39-17 win over the Hokies. With 200 yards, Benson became just the 2nd FSU RB since the 1980s to have a 200+ yard game, with the other being Dalvin Cook.

Cook is all the all-time leading rusher for the Noles, so this is impressive company for Benson. Cook starred for the Seminoles from 2014-16, racking up 4,464 rushing yards, being selected a unanimous All-American, and earning 2 First-team All-ACC nods.

Benson has taken 51 carries for 389 yards and 6 TDs this season. Before the Virginia Tech game, Benson’s season-high in rushing was just 79 yards. The junior transfer spent the first 2 seasons of his college career for the Oregon Ducks, not seeing much action. In 2022, Benson’s first with the Noles, the back rushed 154 times for 990 yards and 9 TDs.

Benson and star QB Jordan Travis have combined to give the Noles the No. 6 scoring offense in the nation.
