Last week: 23 rushes for 288 yards and two TDs; two receptions for 15 yards; three punt returns for 60 yards in 56-31 win over Arizona.

Season: 65 rushes for 613 yards and seven TDs; 11 receptions for 159 yards and one TD; five punt returns for 114 yards and one TD; one kick return for 21 yards.

Last season's rushing king reclaimed his crown -- and a spot on the Watchman's list -- in resounding fashion. James ran for 133 yards, including a 12-yard score, on 11 carries in the first quarter en route to breaking Ontario Smith's single game Ducks record of 257 yards and Derek Loville's mark of 42 career rushing TDs. He also moved up the Pac-12 career rushing list, bypassing Jacquizz Rodgers for sixth-most all-time with 3,890 yards. James gets a week off before facing, Cal, which hasn't allowed a back to hit 100 yards so far this season.

Next up: Thursday, Oct. 6 vs. Cal
