Hardin-Simmons Sul Ross State Set Record For Most Yards Ever in a College Football Game

More news about: Hardin-Simmons

ABILENE, Texas  — Hardin-Simmons and Sul Ross State both showed off their high powered offenses and set a NCAA record for most yards between two teams in a collegiate football game with 1,714 yards as HSU won 86-42 on Saturday afternoon at Shelton Stadium.

The 1,714 yards is the most yards in a game breaking the old record of 1,640 yards by San Jose State and Nevada in 2001.

"I have never seen anything like it, it was like a video game," said Burleson. "We executed our game plan to perfection and our guys went out and performed. Other than that third quarter I thought our defense played well. There is a reason they are No. 1 in the country in offense. They have some talented weapons.  I am proud of our guys coming out and playing hard for our seniors as they played their last game of the year."

The Cowboys rolled up a NCAA Division III record 914 yards, including 685 through the air. Sul Ross State had 800 yards of offense and that was without the nation's leader in all-purpose yardage Dominique Carson (290 YPG), who missed the game with injury. The old record for yards by a team was by McMurry with 848 against Texas Lutheran.

Hardin-Simmons senior quarterback Logan Turner set the school and conference records with 685 yards passing and eight touchdowns, on a 24-of-40 day throwing the ball. He broke the previous ASC record of Jake Mullin who had 614 yards against Texas Lutheran last season.

Senior running back Devin Carver had the second-best all-purpose day in HSU history with 290 all-purpose yards. He ran 20 times for 192 yards and had three catches for 98 yards. He scored four touchdowns in the game.

HSU averaged a school and conference record 12 yards per play in the game.

The Cowboys scored on its first three possessions of the game on an 11-yard run by Carver, a 2-yard run by Bryce Johnson and a 68-yard pass from Logan Turner to Jessie Ramos and the Cowboy defense limited the Lobos to 15 yards on the first three drives.

HSU pushed the lead to 49-7 by halftime on a 5-yard TD pass to Trei Lewis and 46 and six yard touchdown passes to Ramos. Alex Lovan had a 1-yard TD run for Sul Ross State.

The Lobos came out in the second half and scored 35 points and HSU had 27. Sul Ross had 359 yards in the quarter and the Cowboys had 269.   

Turner hit scoring passes to Jimmie Simpson for 44 yards, Devin Carver for 74 yards and Johnson for 57 yards in the quarter and Carver had a 22-yard TD run. SRSU quarterback A.J. Springer ran for a pair of scores in the quarter and threw a pair of touchdown passes. Lovan had a TD run as well.

HSU added 10 points in the fourth quarter on a Scott Newberry 20-yard field goal and a 6-yard run by Carver. Newberry set the school record for career PATs (156) in the game and also tied the record for PATs made (11) and attempted (12) in a game and points scored by a kicker in a game with 14.

Johnson had 213 yards receiving and Ramos had five catches for 133 yards and three touchdowns. James Place led the Cowboys with 14 tackles.

Springer completed 32-of-55 passes for 444 yards and ran for 125 yards and two more TDs for SRSU. Lovan ran for 149 yards for the Lobos and Lee Carothers had 12 catches for 241 yards. Zack Roberson had eight tackles for SRSU.

The Cowboys are now 5-3 overall and 4-1 in ASC action. Sul Ross State fell to 3-5 overall and to 2-3 in league play. HSU plays at Texas Lutheran next Saturday at 1 p.m.

A complete list of the records broken in the game is listed below. There were 42 NCAA, Division III, ASC and Hardin-Simmons records set in the game.
