The numbers just don't make any sense. Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday is challenging the laws of physics, altering the space-time continuum, and bravely going where no Pac-12 quarterback has gone before.
Washington State head coach Mike Leach employs an Air Raid system that sees his teams throwing the ball roughly 75% of the time, and Halliday is reaping the benefits and rewriting the record books. Against Cal last week -- albeit it in a heartbreaking 60-59 loss -- Halliday threw for an NCAA-record 734 yards on 49 of 70 passing with 6 touchdowns. Look at that number again -- SEVEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY-FOUR yards. (For a little perspective, Kevin Hogan passed for 552 yards in his last three games combined.)
