In the Houston Cougars' win over the Rice Owls on Thursday night, Houston star quarterback Case Keenum went off for a career-best 9 passing touchdowns, with 5 of them going to star receiver Patrick Edwards.

With his ridiculous passing output, Keenum's career touchdown totals surpassed that of former Texas Tech and current Green Bay Packer quarterback Graham Harrell for the FBS all-time passing touchdown lead with 139.

When asked about the amazing game he had, Keenum simply said, "It was a blast. That was probably the most fun I've ever had playing football."

Keenum's performance against Rice was just a continuation of his crazy 2011-2012 season. So far through 8 games, Keenum has already thrown 24 TDs opposed to only 3 interceptions along with an astronomical 194.1 passer rating. He has 8 touchdowns more than the next highest quarterback, Boise State signal-caller Kellen Moore, in the FBS this year and he is 3rd in the nation in passer rating. He also has thrown for 600 more yards than the nearest QB in the country, Texas Tech's Seth Doege.

Thursday night's performance was just the latest accomplishment in a season of gaudy stats and wins for Keenum and his undefeated Cougars.
