Last week Nelson passed up Jake Heaps in passing for the season. This week, Heaps passed up Nelson.
It was a bad week for the Phantom. JJ DiLuigi passed him to move into 11th in career rushing yards.
Jacobson moved up one spot to 17th, ahead of Jonny Harline.
Jordan Pendleton finished his career in the 111th spot for career tackles at BYU with 130.
Jake Heaps moved in to 16th place, passing Marc Lyons.
So far, the team is averaging 1.3 interceptions per game. That would be the highest average since 2006.
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.
Nelson’s rating for 2011 (159.7) is identical to Brandon Doman‘s rating in 2001.
A good thumping of Idaho lifted BYU’s points-per-game margin from +3.6 to +6.7.
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.
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.
For the first time this season, Riley Nelson has more passing yards that Jake Heaps.
Matt Marshall’s career passer rating took a hit. With a single incomplete pass, his rating dropped from 188.2 to 125.5.
