Duquesne Dukes (8-3)


SHSU's Briscoe wins Walter Payton Award

(STATS) - It was quite a season for Jeremiah Briscoe. So good in fact that he often didn't even play four quarters and somehow still found a way to etch his name in the record books.

Sam Houston State's Briscoe set the FCS single-season record with 57 touchdown passes and finished one shy of matching Colt Brennan's Division I mark set in 2006. Briscoe threw six TDs or more four times in 11 games and was the FCS regular-season leader in passing yards (4,096), passing yards per game (372.4) and passer rating (187.0).

Remarkably, of his 503 pass attempts, only 136 came in the second half of a game, including just 52 in the fourth quarter.
