Old Dominion’s Taylor Heinicke Sets Div 1 Passing Record With 730 Yards
ESPN is reporting that Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke set the Division 1 single game passing record today throwing for 730 yards in a 64-61 win against New Hampshire.
Heinicke set school marks in pass completions (55), attempts (79), and passing yards (730).
Both schools are in the Football Championship Subdivision which was formally referred to as Div 1AA.
The FBS record is still 716 set by Houston’s David Klingler in 1990.
Earlier this season Sam Durley set the NCAA single game passing record with 736 yards in a Division III game.
Heinicke actually had more passing yards today than Tulane, Massachusetts, Southern Miss, Temple, Hawaii, Kent State, Navy, Texas State and UAB all have passing on the whole season.
