Stat Line Of The Night — 10/27/11 — Case Keenum
One day many of us may have Case Keenum on our fantasy football teams. Unfortunately for us, he will likely never have another performance like the one he had last night against the Rice Owls at Robertson Stadium.
The University of Houston quarterback threw more touchdown passes in a single game than half of the quarterback in the NFL have recorded after six games, as he found his receivers in the end zone an incredible nine times during the Cougars’ 73-34 victory last night. Patrick Edwards was on the receiving end of five of those touchdown passes, while Charles Sims caught two, including one early in the third quarter that gave Keenum the FBS record for career touchdown passes, with 135. By the end of the game he had a total of 139 career touchdown passes.
Keenum made 37 pass attempts and he completed 24 of them for 534 yards. In addition to his nine touchdowns he also threw an interception, but I think we can look past that one mistake and award him with “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, October 27, 2011.
