College Football TD Record Lost in Game 6 Mayhem
Lost in the mayhem of the amazing finish to Game 6 of the World Series was Houston’s Case Keenum performance on Thursday night. Keenum threw nine touchdown passes to set the Football Bowl Subdivision record for career TD tosses as the 18th-ranked Cougars overcame a slow start in a 73-34 win over Rice on a rainy Thursday night.
The night didn’t start out looking like a record setting evening, Keenum threw an interception and had a fumble returned for a touchdown in the first quarter in heavy rain as Rice built a 17-7 lead. As the rain subsided and Keenum and the Cougars got going and they outscored Rice 45-3 to take a 52-20 lead by early in the third quarter and cruised to the easy victory to remain undefeated.
Keenum, who became the FBS career leader in total offense last week, has 139 career touchdown passes. He thoroughly abused Rice’s 115th ranked defense by throwing TD passes of 57, 21, 64, 18, 41, 20, 37, 22 and 47 yards to break former Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell’s record of 134.
Way to go Case!!!
