Freeman is on the verge of surpassing fellow Ducks running back LaMichael James, who played for Oregon from 2009-11, in career rushing yards. Depending on how the rest of his season plays out, Freeman could finish as high as seventh all-time in career rushing yards.
Here is the list of FBS players to reach the 5,000-yard mark. Reminder: Bowl stats were not included in career totals until 2002.

|Donnel Pumphrey||San Diego State||6,405|

|Damion Fletcher||Southern Miss||5,302|
