Week 10 stat list update


CAREER PASSING YARDS

Riley Nelson‘s 56 passing yards vs. Idaho were enough to pass up Eldon ‘The Phantom’ Fortie for 27th in career passing at BYU.

SEASON PASSING YARDS

Last week Nelson passed up Jake Heaps in passing for the season. This week, Heaps passed up Nelson.

CAREER RUSHING

It was a bad week for the Phantom. JJ DiLuigi passed him to move into 11th in career rushing yards.

CAREER RECEIVING

One catch was enough to move McKay Jacobson into a tie with Jay Miller for 25th.

JJ DiLuigi has the same number of receptions in his career (86) as Luke Staley (and Daniel Coats, and Scott Pettis).

CAREER RECEIVING YARDS

Jacobson moved up one spot to 17th, ahead of Jonny Harline.

CAREER TACKLES

Jordan Pendleton finished his career in the 111th spot for career tackles at BYU with 130.

CAREER TOTAL OFFENSE

Jake Heaps moved in to 16th place, passing Marc Lyons.

INTERCEPTIONS

So far, the team is averaging 1.3 interceptions per game. That would be the highest average since 2006.

CAREER QB RATING

Heaps’ rating moved up a bit from 110.3 to 112.7, Nelson’s also increased from 147.7 to 148.6. Heaps’ career rating compares with Jason Beck and Bret Engemann. Nelson’s is similar to Robbie Bosco and John Walsh.

SEASON QB RATING

Nelson’s rating for 2011 (159.7) is identical to Brandon Doman‘s rating in 2001.

TEAM SCORING

A good thumping of Idaho lifted BYU’s points-per-game margin from +3.6 to +6.7.

PAT

If Justin Sorensen can go three more games without missing an extra point he will have the BYU record from most PATs without a miss in a season.

Week 9 stat list update


Once again, with a young team, there isn’t a lot of movement near the top of the stat lists right now. I’ll try to avoid mentioning the overly obscure, like Michael Alisa at No. 83 in career rushing ahead of Ken Call and Kent Oborn.

SEASON PASSING

For the first time this season, Riley Nelson has more passing yards that Jake Heaps.

SEASON QB RATING

Nelson now has more than the 100 attempts needed to show up on the season rating list. His rating for this year dropped from 174.5 to — between Brandon Doman  ’01 and Max Hall ’08.

 QB RATING

Matt Marshall’s career passer rating took a hit. With a single incomplete pass, his rating dropped from 188.2 to 125.5.

RUSHING

With four games left, JJ DiLuigi needs 326 yards to bump Brian McKenzie out of the top 10 in career rushing.

QB RUSHING

Nelson passes Doman for third in QB rushing.

 SEASON QB RUSHING

Nelson has the 6th most rushing yards for a QB in a season, passing Virgil Carter ’66

RECEIVING YARDS

In his Sophomore year, Hoffman is already 54th in career receiving yards, passing Jeff Frandsen, Rod Wilkerson, Tyler Anderson, Toby Christensen and Matt Allen.

 TEAM SCORING

BYU’s scoring margin dropped from +5.3 to +3.6.

PENALTIES

The team is averaging 5.7 penalties for 48.0 yards per game. The only season in the past 35 years with fewer penalties or yards is 2010.
