Big Night in Division II Football
While you were watching the Seahawks decimate the Packers, Texas A&M-Commerce racked up a record 986 yards (no, that's not a typo) of total offense in a 98-20 route of East Texas Baptist. But the Lions weren't the only ones enjoying a record-setting night. Tusculum College in Tennessee held its opponent to minus-100 yards total offense in a 71-0 victory. College of Faith ran 49 offensive plays while losing those 100 yards.
