WATCH: Cal QB Goff breaks Mariota’s Pac-12 record for passing TDs
With his sixth touchdown in the Armed Forces Bowl on Tuesday, Cal QB Jared Goff broke Marcus Mariota’s single-season record for passing touchdowns, the Bears report.
Goff broke the record late in the third quarter on a 25-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Lawler. With the score, Goff also broke the Pac-12 single-season record for passing yards.
Mariota threw for 42 touchdowns for Oregon in 2014 during his Heisman Trophy campaign. With his performance against Air Force, Goff’s season total rose to 43.
TD pass No. 6 on the day for @JaredGoff16. That's 43 for the season, breaking the Pac-12 season mark held by Heisman winner Marcus Mariota.
