The Good And The Bad In Thursday College Football Record Breaking

((HT: ESPN))

First, let's go with the good... well, "good" if you're a fan of Texas A&M-Commerce

98 points, 986 yards of total offense and a 78-point win over East Texas Baptist
Here's the short version...

Not surprisingly, the 986 yards is an NCAA Division II record for total offense. They also set Lone Star Conference records for points scored with 98, tied the touchdown record with 13, broke the record for the most point after attempts with 13 and tied the record with 11 PATs made. A&M-Commerce set a record for most points in a half with 57.

On the flip side, NCAA DII South Atlantic Conference power Tusculum allowed (or "didn't allow?") minus-100 total yards and minus-124 yards rushing to set the NCAA single-game records in a 71-0 victory over the College of Faith.

Here's what Tusculum thought about the match-up before the game
((HT: Tusculum Athletics))

The previous record was minus-69, by Division II school Fort Valley State against Miles in 1993. The previous record for fewest yards rushing allowed was minus-112, by Division III program Coast Guard against Wesleyan (Connecticut) in 1989.

Tusculum beat Faith last year 63-0 and here's the Frankie DeBusk show from that week
