Matt Dayes aiming for 1,000-yard milestone

NC State has not had a 1,000-yard rusher since T.A. McLendon was a freshman in 2002 and ran for 1,101 yards.

That streak was going to end last season before now-senior Matthew Dayes’ gruesome toe injury required surgery and sidelined him for the remainder of the season after about 7.5 games. At that point, Dayes had rushed for 865 yards. At the pace he was going, threatening Ted Brown’s 1978 school record of 1,350 yards in one season was not out of the question.

Will a healthy Dayes finally end that drought of 1,000-yard rushers in 2016?
