WSU has been slowly overtaking control of the Pac-12 passing record books in recent years. First, Connor Halliday claimed individual game glory. Then, Luke Falk carved out a big chunk for the Cougars. Gardner Minshew II came in and expanded the Cougars’ territory. Now, Anthony Gordon made sure a Coug is in all of the top spots.

Career Records

  • Passing Yards - Luke Falk
  • Passing Touchdowns - Luke Falk
  • Pass Completions - Luke Falk
  • Pass Attempts - Luke Falk
  • Completion Percentage - Luke Falk

Single-Season Records

  • Passing Yards - Anthony Gordon
  • Passing Touchdowns - Anthony Gordon
  • Pass Completions - Gardner Minshew II
  • Pass Attempts - Connor Halliday

Single-Game Records

  • Passing Yards - Connor Halliday
  • Passing Touchdowns - Anthony Gordon
  • Pass Completions - Connor Halliday
  • Pass Attempts - Connor Halliday

NCAA Records

  • Passing Yards (single game) - Connor Halliday
  • Pass Attempts (single game) - Connor Halliday

Anthony Gordon has an outside shot of breaking the single-season record for passing yards. He needs 914 yards over the final two games to break BJ Symons’ NCAA record. That is only slightly more than his season average of 447 yards per game.

At least WSU is generous and let’s the other Pac-12 schools have most of the rushing records.
