On Saturday, Oklahoma and Texas Tech played like they were playing in a video game. But they didn’t need controls to see insane numbers on the scoreboard.
Texas Tech quarterback Pat Mahomes set the FBS for the most total yards in a game. He accounted for 819 yards.
Mahomes had 734 passing yards. He helped the team account for 854 yards.
He tied the NCAA record for passing yards, as he tied former Washington Cougars quarterback Connor Halliday. Mahomes set the mark for 819 total yards.
“We were like, ‘Wow, OK,’” defensive end James McFarland told the Fort Worth Star Telegram. “My initial thinking was, ‘Ok, 800 yards. How many game is 800 yards?’”
The Sooners defeated the Red Raiders, 66-59, but both teams combined for an NCAA record for 1,708 yards — the most offensive yards in a college game.
Halliday and Mahomes will now share the record if nobody is able to break the mark. Halliday reached his 734 passing yardage mark on Oct. 5, 2014 against the Cal Bears.
David Klinger, the former Houston Cougars quarterback, previously had the record of a 716 yards, which he set in 1990 against the Arizona State Sun Devils in Tokyo, Japan.
