San Diego State CB Damontae Kazee accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Kazee is a bawl hawk who had seven interceptions this year to make it 17 for his prodigious career. He originally declared for the NFL Draft last year before deciding to return. Kazee projects as a mid-round pick, according to ESPN's Todd McShay.

San Diego State junior RB Rashaad Penny topped the 1,000-yard mark to make the Aztecs the first college team in history to have a 2,000-yard rusher and a 1,000-yard rusher in the same season.

Penny had only nine carries for 10 yards, but that was enough to get him to 1,005 yards on the season. In conjunction with Donnell Pumphrey's 2,133 yards rushing, SDSU boasts the FBS' first 2k/1k backfield. The Aztecs, who finished 11-3, will turn to Penny as lead back next year following Pumphrey's graduation.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey snapped the NCAA career rushing record in Saturday's 34-10 victory over Houston in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Pumphrey ran for 115 yards and a touchdown to pass former Wisconsin star Ron Dayne's record of 6,397 yards. Pumphrey's record stands at 6,405 yards. In his last season of eligibility, Pumphrey logged 2,133 yards rushing and ended up accounting for more than 40-percent of his team's offense. Pumphrey will take part in the Senior Bowl before beginning preparations for the NFL Combine in advance of this spring's NFL Draft. Pumphrey is an air back who's a little bit better of a prospect than Ronnie Hillman was when Hillman came out of SDSU. We're expecting him to land in the Rds. 3-5 range, though this loaded running back class complicates running back projections.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Pumphrey's career with the Aztecs has been nothing short of marvelous. He surpassed 1,600 yards rushing in every one of his seasons at SDSU outside of his freshman year in 2013. The current campaign has been his best yet on the yardage front, as he is currently sitting on 2,018 yards rushing (6.1 YPC) through 13 games played. In late September, an NFC scout forwarded the belief that Pumphrey "has the tools to be an electric change-of-pace back at the next level."

San Diego State G Nico Siragusa accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Siragusa was a First-Team All-Mountain West selection this year. He's played in 53 consecutive games and made 40 consecutive starts. Donnel Pumphrey has run behind the 6-foot-3, 325-pound Siragusa often over the past few years.

San Diego State senior CB Damontae Kazee projects as a mid-round pick, according to ESPN's Todd McShay.

Kazee nearly declared for the NFL Draft last year. "He's a ball hawk playing in a zone-heavy scheme," McShay wrote. Kazee has seven picks this year and 17 over his career. In 2015, he finished No. 11 nationally among cornerbacks in Pro Football Focus' grades.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Saturday's 27-24 win over Wyoming in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Pumphrey and backfield buddy Rashaad Penny both surpassed 100 yards rushing in this one, with Penny actually leading the Aztecs with his 117 yards. As a team, San Diego State rushed for 242 yards and three touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Pumphrey looked absolutely unstoppable for much of the season, but had been held under 100 yards rushing in each of his last two games prior to breaking out of his mini-slump on Saturday. San Diego State has now won back-to-back Mountain West titles. A year ago, they defeated Air Force to earn conference bragging rights.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for just 53 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in the school's 63-31 loss to Colorado State.

Pumphrey added a catch for eight yards. This was absolutely a season low for a running back who was pushing the NCAA record books in terms of rushing yards. The Aztecs are bowl eligible, and Pumphrey will definitely surface at an all star event, likely the Senior Bowl.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 76 yards on 17 carries in Saturday's 34-33 loss to Wyoming.

Rare is the day that Mr. Pumphrey is held under the century mark. It has happened just one other time during the 2016 campaign, when he went for 98 yards against New Hampshire in the season-opener (he also scored four touchdowns in that one, so there you go). Having now rushed for 1,855 yards, Pumphrey will need 145 against Colorado State next weekend to reach 2,000 on the season.

San Diego State RB Donnel Pumphrey has earned a Senior Bowl invitation.

On the season, Pumphrey has rushed for 1,581 yards and 13 touchdowns with three regular season games remaining. Pumphrey will certainly produce his third straight 1,600-plus rushing yard season and possible third straight 2,000-plus total yard season in a row. The west coaster has already passed notable names on the all time rushing list, including Herschel Walker back in October. The running back class looks to be an awesome one this spring.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 112 yards on 21 carries in Saturday's 55-0 win over Hawaii.

At least part of Pumphrey's librarian-approved evening was due to the fact that this was never really a contest at all. The Aztecs led 14-0 after one quarter and 27-0 at the half, eliminating the need for a true Pumhrey supernova. As is, this was the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder's second-lowest yardage output of the season and his lowest mark since he went for 98 yards against New Hampshire in the season-opener. For the season as a whole, the stalwart senior has rushed for 1,581 yards and 13 touchdowns. He will finish November with regular-season contests against Nevada, Wyoming and Colorado State to try to close out what is tracking toward a 2,000-yard campaign.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 223 yards on 32 carries in Friday's 40-13 win over Utah State.

Alas, Pumphrey failed to score a touchdown in the game. He had found the end zone in each of the Aztecs' first seven games prior to Friday's affair. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound senior impressed even without a score, averaging 7.0 YPC with a long run of 44 yards. His 2016 season has been nothing short of bonkers (that is the official analytic designation), as Pumphrey has surpassed 200 yards rushing in four of eight games and has been held under 100 just once. It all adds up to 1,469 yards and 13 touchdowns. The stretch run for his 2,000-yard quest consists of dates with (sequentially) Hawaii, Nevada, Wyoming and Colorado State. Both Hawaii and Nevada currently house bottom-seven run defenses.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 135 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries in Friday's 42-3 win over San Jose State.

With his two scores, Pumphrey topped Marshall Faulk's school record for touchdowns in an Aztec career. That his 135 yards rushing represented his second lowest total of the season tells you just how brilliant Pumphrey has been in 2016. The 5-foot-9 has surpassed 100 yards rushing in every game but one and has recorded three contests of 220-plus yards. It all adds up to 1,246 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. San Diego State still has another five games left on the regular season schedule.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey passed Herschel Walker on the all-time FBS rushing list.

Some might point to Pumphrey being in his fourth year while Walker only played three seasons of college ball, but Walker was allowed 994 carries to reach 5,259 yards, while Pumphrey needed 877 carries to get to 5,383 yards... and he is still going. Some might wonder what Pumphrey's NFL position will be, as he and Walker could not be more different from a frame standpoint. At the very least, Pumphrey can act as an air back in the NFL.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey buried Fresno State in Friday's 17-3 win, rushing for 220 yards and two touchdowns on 38 carries.

Pumphrey's 220 yards rushing outpaced the yardage total of Fresno State's entire offense. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound senior was as consistent as a finely tuned metronome in this one, averaging 5.8 YPC with a long run of 22 yards. He might not have the eyes on him of a Dalvin Cook or Leonard Fournette, but Pumphrey is as good as they come at the collegiate level. Friday's contest was his third of at least 200 yards rushing through six games. For the season as a whole, he has racked up 1,113 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns. At this point, it is a legitimate possibility that Pumphrey might be able to surpass 2,000 yards rushing when all is said and done.
