McKoy, a senior on Division III Western Connecticut, finished with 455 yards and five touchdowns on 43 carries in the Colonials' 55-35 win over Worcester State. He scored on runs of 15, 1, 41, 53 and 71 yards.
LaDainian Tomlinson holds the FBS single-game record with 406 rushing yards.

Cordell threw for 349 yards to increase his career total to 15,049. That broke the D-II record set by Zach Amedro, who threw for 14,733 yards for West Liberty from 2007-10.
Case Keenum, who played at Houston from 2007-11, holds the record for most career yards passing (19,217) of any college player regardless of classification.
