Memphis QB Paxton Lynch sets school TD record before half


Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch set a school record with seven touchdown passes in today’s game against SMU. Ready for the part that’s absolutely nuts? He did it all before the half.

Lynch got the ball rolling and opened the scoring with a 43-yard pass to Phil Mayhue, putting Memphis up 7-0.

Lynch next found Doroland Dorceus on a screen for a 16-yard touchdown to make the score 14-0.

It was Frank Wims’ turn next, as he reeled in a 21-yard touchdown catch and Memphis then made it 28-0 by recovering a fumble in the end zone. But that was just the first quarter.

The scoring opened in the second quarter when Daniel Montiel caught Lynch’s pass for a 15 yard score, and then Anthony Miller caught one for 44 yards. Throw in a six-yard toss to Daniel Hurd and a 22-yarder to Mose Frazier, and Lynch has seven touchdown passes on the game, all to different receivers too.

Needless to say, Lynch is in a fine position to break Case Keenum’s record of nine TD passes in a game today.
