Trent Richardson ran for 98 yards, including a clinching 34-yard touchdown in Alabama’s 21-0 win over LSU in the BCS National Championship.

The touchdown run came in the fourth quarter and capped the scoring. Richardson had 20 carries with only four of them resulting in runs of more than five yards, but he saved the best for last with his 34-yard TD run. Richardson had 89 yards on 23 carries along with 80 receiving yards in the first meeting between the teams. The Heisman finalist finished the year with 1,679 yards (5.9 ypc) and 21 TDs rushing.

Alabama running back Trent Richardson won the Doak Walker Award as the nation's best running back.

Richardson validates his case to remain a Heisman candidate by being named the country's best back this season. The junior ran it 263 times for 1,583 yards and 20 rushing touchdowns, and added three more receiving scores for the Tide as well. Richardson only failed to reach 100 yards in three games this season, and only failed register a touchdown in one contest all year. Richardson was held to only 89 yards on the ground during the team's first meeting with LSU, and the Tide will need better from Richardson in order to take home the National Title Jan. 9.

Like teammate Mark Ingram two years ago, Trent Richardson could win the Heisman and national championship in the same season.

We will know for sure Saturday when the Heisman winner is announced if Richardson, who was named SEC Offensive Player of the Year today, can pull off this feat. If so, it would be the third straight year that it would happen following Ingram in 2009 and Auburn’s Cam Newton last year.

Trent Richardson ran for a career-high 203 yards in Alabama’s 42-14 Iron Bowl-win at Auburn.

Richardson has nine 100-yard games this season and will head into the Tide’s bowl game (possibly playing for the national title depending on how things shake out next week) with 1,583 rushing yards. In the last three games – Mississippi State, Georgia Southern and Auburn – Richardson has 505 yards rushing.

Alabama’s Trent Richardson had career highs with 183 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 52-7 win over Ole Miss.

The effort was Richardson’s sixth straight 100-yard game and his 4 TDs give him 15 on the ground and 16 total scores this season. It was the second time this season that Richardson, who had 17 carries, averaged better than 10 yards per tote; he was 11-167 against North Texas on Sept. 17.

Alabama running back Trent Richardson ran for a career-high 181 yards and 2 TDs in a romp in The Swamp.

The effort marked Richardson’s fourth 100-yard game of the season. In the last three of those, which includes games against Arkansas and the Gators, he is 57-474-5. With numbers like he had in Gainesville on Saturday night, it’s safe to say the junior is solidly in the early Heisman mix.

Alabama RB Trent Richardson rushed for 126 yards on 17 carries, and added 85 receiving yards on three receptions in the team's 38-14 victory over Arkansas.

"We didn’t stop Richardson with the run game," Arkansas defensive coordinator Willy Robinson said. "That’s where you’ve got to start because if you don’t stop the run, it will be a long game." Richardson simply wore down the Razorbacks defense with 13 second half touches for 144 yards. The majority of his receiving came on a 61 yard screen pass for a touchdown in the third quarter. Alabama (4-0) travels to Florida in Week 5.
