Calling all CFB statisticians!

In reading the ESPN preview of the game this weekend (http://espn.go.com/ncf/preview?gameId=302680130), I read a stat that Denard is still leading the nation in rushing... I fully anticipate that some 45 carry/game MAC RB will take the lead at some point, but made me wonder: has a QB in the modern era (1970-now) ever lead the NATION in rushing? I looked at HicockSports (http://www.hickoksports.com/history/ncfleada.shtml#rushing) a good stat resource and I didn't see any QB's in that timeframe. Makes me wonder what QB last led the nation in rushing as late in the season as possible. I would assume it would have to be either a option QB at Neb or Oklahoma in the glory days of the wishbone or maybe even Michael Vick for a 2-3 week period... anyone give me a better answer to either of my two questions:

1) when was the last time a QB led the NCAA in rushing?

2) When was the last time a QB led the nation in rushing after week 4? latest week in the season?
