Houston’s Case Keenum, already the NCAA’s all-time total offense leader, has another momentous record within his sights.
He’s 901 yards shy of passing Hawaii’s Timmy Chang (17,072 career yards) to become the all-time NCAA career passing yardage leader. Knowing Keenum, he should get there within the next three games.
Note: I doubt anyone will ever break Keenum’s final yardage record–which should be in the 18,500 yard range–given that he had an extra couple games last year to add to the total before redshirting due to injury.
This past week was just another day at the office for Keenum, but it was spectacular enough to earn him Heismanpundit’s Player of the Week honors.
Keenum was 24 of 28 for 376 yards and 6 touchdown passes as Houston moved to 7-0 with a 63-28 win over Marshall.
His play is not going unnoticed, as several Heisman polls — including one that will be released on this web site tomorrow — have him among the top 5 contenders in the race.
Houston has a great chance to go undefeated, which means Keenum’s chances of making it to New York as a Heisman finalist could blossom as the season goes on.
We’re looking forward to watching him make history along the way.
