Keenum becomes NCAA's all-time leading passer
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Case Keenum has passed Timmy Chang to become the most prolific passer in NCAA history.
Keenum, the Houston senior, completed a 16-yard pass to Justin Johnson in the third quarter on Saturday night against UAB to pass Chang's record of 17,072 yards for Hawaii from 2000-04.
Keenum began the night 267 yards away from matching Chang's mark. Keenum already holds the NCAA career records for TD passes and total offense for No. 14 Houston.
Keenum, who threw nine TD passes against Rice last week, completed his first 11 passes against UAB.
