Division III Quarterback Breaks NCAA Passing Record


iStockphoto(GALESBURG, Ill.) — Eureka College quarterback Sam Durley tossed for 736 yards Saturday, breaking the NCAA single-game passing record, in the Red Devils 62-55 victory over Knox in the inaugural Abraham Lincoln bowl.

The junior-quarterback made history when he connected with Jake Bane on a 13-yard touchdown pass with 20 seconds left in the game. The previous record was held by Menlo College quarterback Zamir Amin, who passed for 731 yards against Cal Lutheran in 2000.
