Dalvin Cook passes Warrick Dunn as Florida State's all-time leading rusher
Cook broke Dunn's record during Florida State's game against Syracuse
There is no longer any doubt. Dalvin Cook is the greatest running back to ever come through Florida State's program ... at least statistically.
Cook surpassed Dunn's school career rushing record of 3,959 yards, set in 1996, during the first quarter of the Seminoles' game against Syracuse.
Cook entered the day with 3,941 yards -- 18 behind the record -- and could have broken it in Week 11 if he had played the entire game against Boston College. However, that was a blowout win and coach Jimbo Fisher opted to rest his star player instead of keeping him in the game.
Considering the outcome, it was the clear and correct move.
Cook had 1,242 yards on the year coming into Saturday, putting him among the top-10 leading rushers. He was a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate and likely would be receiving more consideration if the Seminoles were competing for an ACC championship or a playoff spot.
Still, there's no denying Cook's raw ability. Barring a surprise, he's likely off to the NFL after this season.
