VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Mike Pringle broke George Reed's Canadian Football League career rushing record Saturday night, running for 63 yards
in the Edmonton Eskimos' 36-33 overtime loss to the British Columbia Lions.
The 36-year-old Pringle, who entered the game a yard short of Reed's mark of 16,116 yards, broke the record with a 10-yard run early in the first
quarter. Pringle finished the game with 16,178 yards in 13 seasons.
Reed played for Saskatchewan from 1963-75.
