Dalvin Cook breaks Florida State’s all-time rushing TD record

Florida State star running back Dalvin Cook has solidified his place in Seminoles history.

During Saturday’s 31-13 shellacking of in-state rival Florida, Cook rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown — a 17-yard scamper — came in the first quarter of the Seminoles’ win.

The touchdown was Cook’s 45th career rushing touchdown, which makes his the school’s new all-time rushing touchdown leader.

The junior running back broke Greg Allen’s 32-year old record.

This season, Cook has rushed 242 times for 1,467 yards and 17 scores. Throughout his three-year career in Tallahassee, the Miami native has recorded 4,166 yards and 44 career rushing touchdowns.

Florida State missed out on this year’s ACC Championship Game, so the Seminoles will have to sit back and wait on the bowl selection committee to see who and where they will play during the postseason in what could be Cook’s final collegiate game before declaring for the 2017 NFL Draft.
