Carrier, Edwards help Keenum reach records



HOUSTON (AP) — As Case Keenum has set NCAA records, senior receivers Tyron Carrier and Patrick Edwards have been right there with him, putting up their own numbers for high-powered Houston.

The No. 14 Cougars (8-0, 4-0 Conference USA) and the nation’s top-ranked offense play at UAB (1-7, 1-4) on Saturday in pursuit of the best start in school history.

Keenum, already the Football Bowl Subdivision’s career leader in total offense (17,692 yards) and touchdown passes (139), needs 267 yards passing to break the NCAA record of 17,072 held by Hawaii’s Tim Chang.

It’s possible that either Carrier or Edwards will make the reception that sends Keenum over the top. Both have caught a pass in every game they’ve played at Houston.
