When Mike Kafka of Northwestern rushed for 217 yards in the Wildcats’ 24-17 win against Minnesota, he became the fourth quarterback this season to rush for 200 yards in a game. That’s the most 200-yard rushing games by quarterbacks in a season since there were four in 2005, and that’s more than the 2006 and 2007 seasons combined (two).
The eleven 200-yard rushing games by a quarterback since 2004:

Pat White of West Virginia has had three 200-yard rushing games in his career, but none since 2006. Vince Young of Texas had two 200-yard rushing games in 2005, including the BCS championship game against USC on January 4, 2006. White, Young, and Brad Smith of Missouri are three of only eight players in FBS/D1-A history to both rush for 200 yards and pass for 200 yards in a game.
