Walker Set USFL Record

Former University of Georgia Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker set a USFL record as a running back on the New Jersey Generals by breaking the 2,000-yard mark in a 31-24 win over Jacksonville. Walker’s record was only surpassed by two NFL running backs - O.J. Simpson (2,003 yards in 1973) and Erik Dickerson (2,105 yards in 1984).
