Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke put together an entire season in one game. Heinicke threw for an NCAA division one record 730 yards in the Monarchs 64-61 win over New Hampshire.Here’s a game report. (Thanks WAVY-TV)
Heinicke broke the NCAA Division one record held by Houston’s David Klinger who threw for 716 yards against Arizona State in 1990. Heinicke was just one yard shy of the all-division record set by Zamir Amin of Menlo (Div. III) who passed for 731 yards against Cal Lutheran in 2000.
The passing yards record wasn’t the only one Heinicke broke today. His 61 yards rushing gave Heinicke 791 yards of total offense breaking Klinger’s FBS record of 732 set in the ASU game in 1990.
While ODU accumulated 824 yards of total offense New Hampshire totaled 725 yards of total offense. That added up to an NCAA FCS record of 1,549 yards of total offense. The previous mark was 1,423 in a game featuring Murray State (816) and Missouri State (607) back on October. 9, 2010.
The defensive coordinators for the Monarchs and the Wildcats are going to have a lot to say during film sessions.
