Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke has just added himself to the NCAA record book.
Heinicke threw for 730 yards in a 64-61 win against New Hampshire on Saturday to break David Klingler's Division-I record for passing yards in a single game. The record stood for 22 years.
"I have a hard time fathoming what he's doing on the football field," coach Bobby Wilder said of Heinicke after the game.
Heinicke completed 55 of 79 passes and threw for five touchdowns and no interceptions as he rallied the Monarch from a 54-38 defincit through three quarters. He set Old Dominion records for completions (55), attempts (79), and passing yards (730).
Heinicke's record was third-most in all divisions trailing Menlo (D-III) quarterback Zamir Amin, who threw for 731 yards in 2000, and Eureka College's (D-III) Sam Durley, who earlier this year, set the record for all division with 736 yards.
