SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — It’s official: Utah’s Reggie Dunn set an NCAA record with two 100-yard kickoff returns for touchdowns in a win over Cal.
The Utes announced during Saturday’s game that the returns were a school record and that he was one of 17 players in NCAA history with two TD returns in the same game.
The NCAA confirmed Tuesday that Dunn is the first to have both cover 100 yards. He is the second player in NCAA history with three career 100-yard kickoff returns, the other coming in 2010 against Iowa State.
Dunn’s 48-yard average would lead the nation if he had enough attempts, but the senior from Compton, Calif., only recently regained the job.
