"I have to give all the credit to my teammates on the edge catching passes and the offensive line for giving us time to work," Rollison said, according to the school's website

By comparison, the FBS record for total offense in a single game is 1,021 yards, (250 rushing, 771 passing in 86 plays) set by Houston in a 95-20 victory over SMU on Oct. 21, 1989.
