Toledo sophomore Kareem Hunt was named to the Associated Press All-Bowl Team thanks to his record-breaking performance in the GoDaddy Bowl Jan. 4.

Hunt set the GoDaddy Bowl record with a career-high 271 yards rushing and also tied the all-bowl record with five touchdowns as the Rockets defeated Arkansas State, 63-44.

The all-time bowl record of five touchdowns is held by two others, most recently Oklahoma State’s Barry Sanders at the 1988 Holiday Bowl.

Hunt, who was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, scored five rushing touchdowns from four, 44, 29, six and one yard out. That tied the school record for touchdowns set by five players, most recently Eric Page in 2011. The last Rocket to rush for five TDS was Joe Schwartz vs. Kent State in 1971. It also ties the Mid-American Conference record held by 10 other players.
