Wait...what?

RED GRANGE.


Grange vaulted to national prominence as a result of his performance in the October 18, 1924, game against Michigan. This was the grand opening game for the new Memorial Stadium, built as a memorial to University of Illinois students and alumni who had served in World War I.[3] He returned the opening kickoff for a 95-yard touchdown and scored three more touchdowns on runs of 67, 56 and 44 yards in the first twelve minutes.[4] This four-touchdown first quarter outburst equaled the number of touchdowns allowed by Michigan in the previous two seasons.[4] After sitting out the second quarter, Grange returned in the second half to run 11 yards for a fifth touchdown and passed 20 yards for a sixth score as Illinois won 39-14 to end Michigan's 20-game unbeaten streak. He amassed 402 yards - 212 rushing, 64 passing and 126 on kickoff returns.[4]

I probably should have said "NFL player", but I thought it was assumed the question was about NFL unless otherwise stated. I'll leave it up to the moderators if there's a dispute.

Nah, no dispute dood. I was just a lil confused, I'm not even sure Grange was the first college player to run for 200 yards. My guess is prolly not.
