Reggie Corbin has eclipsed another career milestone.
Saturday night, the senior Illinois running back totaled 134 yards on the ground in a heartbreaking 42-38 loss to Nebraska. That total was enough, though, to put him at 2,000 total rushing yards for his career with the blue and orange.
It took him just three games into the 2019 season to hit that mark. So far this season, Corbin has 314 yards and three touchdowns in three games. He missed one game earlier this fall due to injury. The Illini are 2-2.
With 134 yards on Saturday, @JuicedUpReg sits at exactly 2,000 career rushing yards.

Corbin had the best season of his career a year ago, eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark for the first time. He finished with 1,085 yards and nine touchdowns to close out his redshirt junior season.
At his current pace, Corbin would break his old season record by more than 50 yards. He’s currently on pace to rush for 1,152 yards and 11 touchdowns this season, assuming he plays in Illinois’ remaining eight games.
While he’ll have to put up some big numbers in the final eight games, hitting 3,000 yards isn’t out of the picture for Corbin.
