Marc Jones continues to fill PSAC record book, rushes for six touchdowns

  Marc Jones rushed for 261 yards and six touchdowns in another record-setting performance on Saturday.

Marc Jones continues his demolition of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference record books in 2017.

Two weeks ago, Jones set the PSAC single-game rushing record behind a 354-yard performance. This week, he took aim at the end zone.

Jones ran for 261 yards against Edinboro, giving him 1,293, tops in every division of NCAA football. After scoring six touchdowns on Saturday, he now has 17 on the season. He is the fourth PSAC running back to reach the mark, with Indiana (Pennsylvania)'s Samir Bullock most recently matching the mark just one week ago.

At first glance, Jones isn't the type of back you would expect to be putting up these numbers. He has the height (5-foot-11), but he's a bruiser, weighing in at 230 pounds. His offensive line, however, gets him to the secondary, and once he gets those matchups with defensive backs, Jones takes care of the rest.

Stay tuned. If you miss a game, you may miss another Jones' record-setting performance.
