Houston, TX – Case Keenum put on a historic performance 34 victory over the Rice Owls.
During last weekend's 63-28 rout of Marshall, Keenum set a pair of NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision records. He passed former Hawaii star Timmy Chang's career total offense mark and surpassed former Central Michigan QB Dan Lefevour's TD's accounted for record.
The star QB came into Thursday's game needing just five touchdown passes to set the passing touchdowns record. Keenum had little trouble doing that, as he broke former Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell's record of 134 with a TD pass early in the third quarter.
Keenum now has 139 career TD passes for the Cougars (8-0, 4-0 C-USA), who have equaled their best start in school history.
