A 244.2 passer rating. 244.2 as in 244.freaking2.
That’s the kind of number we’ve seen AM post against the likes of Georgia Tech and Auburn. But South Carolina?
To put that in perspective, the second highest passer rating notched against the Gamecock defense by a quarterback attempting more than ten passes during the Clowney era was Florida’s 194.68, and that was a turnover-aided effort (Driskel’s ypa was a mere 5.5). If you take it all the way back to 2007, the only higher rating was achieved by Arkansas in 2007 in one of McFadden’s more insane games. (By the way, if you ever want to see something fun, check out McFadden’s passing game log for that season. It’s bonkers.)
It was a phenomenal game. And I’m not sure the stat line truly does it justice.
