Game Notes
No. 18 Louisiana Tech at Texas State

-          On his touchdown pass to R.P. Stuart in the first quarter, quarterback Colby Cameron set a new NCAA record for consecutive pass attempts without an interception (380). That breaks the old NCAA record set by Russell Wilson (North Carolina State) in 2008-09. He ended the game with the streak intact at 419 consecutive passes attempted without an interception.

-          Kenneth Dixon scored four rushing touchdowns to set a new NCAA record for rushing touchdowns in a season by a freshman. Dixon ended the game with 24 rushing scores to his credit this year breaking the old record of 21 set by Marshall Faulk (San Diego State, 1991) and Ryan Williams (Virginia Tech, 2009).
