University of La Verne running back Matthew Biggers was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week on Tuesday for his record-setting performance last weekend against eighth-ranked Cal Lutheran as he became the first Leopard in school history to surpass 300 rushing yards in a single game.
A junior from Riverside, Biggers rushed for a single-game school record 304 yards while adding three touchdowns against the Kingsmen on November 3. The junior scored from 63, 13 and 14 yards out in the contest.
In the process, Biggers also eclipsed the 1,000-yard milestone on the year as he currently has rushed for a conference-best 1,175 yards on the season through eight games. Additionally, he ranks fifth among Division III leaders in yards per game with an average of 146.8 per outing.
The honor marks the second time in which Biggers has earned D3football.com Team of the Week accolades. Last season he was named to the Team of the Week after posting a then-career best of 235 yards against Pomona-Pitzer (Nov. 5, 2011).
