Keenum sets FBS record for career TD passes
HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston quarterback Case Keenum has set the Football Bowl Subdivision record for career touchdown passes with 135.
Keenum entered Thursday's game with 130 and found Charles Sims on a 41-yard pass in the third quarter to set the record and put No. 18 Houston ahead of Rice 45-20.
He hit Patrick Edwards on a 57-yard pass for his first touchdown at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter Tyron Carrier caught one for 21 yards and Edwards grabbed the third one for 64 yards. Justin Johnson's 18-yard reception just before halftime tied the record.
Keenum, who became the FBS career leader in total offense last week, moved ahead of former Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell for the record for TD passes.
