COLLEGE PARK, Maryland — Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins has officially broken both of the major single-season quarterback records in Ohio State history as his 405 passing yards and three passing touchdowns in the victory over Maryland makes Haskins the all-time single-season leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns in OSU history.
The previous mark for passing yards of 3,330 set by Joe Germaine in 1998 was broken early in the game by Haskins as he only needed 51 yards coming into this game.
The other record for passing touchdowns was going to be much harder as Haskins needed three passing touchdowns to pass J.T. Barrett’s record of 35 that he set just last season. Haskins did that late in the game with a game-tying touchdown pass to Benjimin Victor which sent Ohio State and Maryland into overtime, where the Buckeyes would go on to win 52-51.
What made it even more special for Haskins was that he got to break both of those records in front of his family in his home state of Maryland.
With still one more game left in the regular season and then potential postseason games, it’s fair to say that Haskins could end up compiling total single-season numbers that won’t be passed for a very long time.
