Each week during the college football season, we looked at some statistics involving individuals and/or teams that we found intriguing. Here is this week's version:
Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden and Arizona's Nick Foles each attempted more than 50 passes in last week's game, which Oklahoma State won. Weeden was 42-of-53, while Foles was 37-of-51. The 104 passing attempts is a long way from the NCAA record for most passes in one game; the mark of 135 was set in the 1990 Houston-TCU game. But Foles and Weeden combined to complete 79 passes, close to tying the record for most combined completions. The record of 81 was set in that same Houston-TCU game.
Staying with Keenum, he now has 114 career TD passes; that's 20 shy of tying the NCAA career record owned by former Texas Tech QB Graham Harrell.
Eight teams scored 50-plus points in Week 2; that's five fewer than reached the plateau in Week 1. Two teams did it in each of the first two weeks: Washington State (64 and 59) and Arkansas (52 and 51).
Eastern Michigan has 10 sacks in its first two games -- meaning the Eagles already have equaled their number of sacks from last season, when they were 118th nationally in the category. It helps when you play two outmanned FCS foes, as EMU has beaten Howard and Alabama State this season. It likely will be a little tougher to get a sack this week, when EMU plays Denard Robinson and Michigan.
Washington is 2-0, but its third-down defense has been -- in a word -- horrendous. Huskies opponents have converted 21 of their 30 third-down opportunities (70 percent). Washington plays at Nebraska this week. At the other end of the spectrum is Florida, which has allowed just three conversions in 23 third-down opportunities (13 percent).
