Star performance

Mon., Sept. 24, 2012

Taylor Heinicke topped himself. The quarterback for Old Dominion, who threw seven touchdown passes in a blowout victory against Campbell last week, made that look like no big deal with an encore performance that earned him a place in college football history. Heinicke threw for a NCAA Division I record 730 yards on Saturday, leading the highly ranked Monarchs back from a 23-point deficit midway through the third quarter to a 64-61 victory against New Hampshire in Norfolk, Va. As New Hampshire coach Sean McDonnell said of ODU: “They’ve got a guy pulling the trigger who doesn’t make mistakes.” He sure didn’t make any Saturday while breaking a mark David Klingler of Houston set in 1990 with 716 yards against Arizona State. – Associated Press
