Outside of that last throw, Aaron Murray’s performance against FAU was pretty remarkable.
Murray had his way with the Florida Atlantic defense during the Bulldogs’ 56-20 win. Murray went 14-of-19 for a career-high 342 yards and two touchdowns. His 18 yards per attempt was the highest average for any FBS player with at least 15 attempts since former Central Michigan QB Dan LeFevour averaged 18.4 against Buffalo on Nov. 24, 2006. [Emphasis added.]
So, in response to “yeah, but it was against FAU”, tell me this: how many really good offenses do you figure have faced off against really crappy defenses since November of 2006? And yet there sits Murray’s night.
