At the time of his departure, Loville held the school record for games of 100+ rushing yards (11), and his 5,223 all-purpose yards were well beyond anyone else’s imagination.

Lolville’s stat line is still impressive to this day even though some of his No. 1 records have since been replaced. After being drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 1990, he went on to play for the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos as well.
