SMU, Houston make NCAA history with offensive onslaught

Nov 7, 2022

SMU and Houston football teams made history Saturday in a game that would finish with a score reminiscent of a basketball game.

Mustangs quarterback Tanner Mordecai had nine touchdown passes, including seven in the first half, along with 379 passing yards in the 77-63 victory. He also had a rushing touchdown.

The 140 combined points set the NCAA FBS single-season scoring record for two teams in regulation. SMU reached school records with 77 points in a game, 11-total touchdowns, nine passing touchdowns scored and 433 total yards in the first half.

The two teams went tit-for-tat. Houston scored a touchdown with 3:37 left in the fourth and got the ball back to try and get back into the game later. However, Clayton Thune would throw an interception in the end zone with 1:52 left in the game to end all hope.
