College Football Records That Won't Be Touched

These college football records are so impressive that they won't be broken this season, or potentially ever.

College football season is finally upon as, and despite some elite talent across the nation, there are a handful of records that have no chance of being broken during the 2023 season, or potentially ever.

While the Georgia Bulldogs are hoping for a three-peat of national titles and Caleb Williams is pushing for back-to-back Heisman Trophies, college football's biggest stars still have no chance at surpassing some of the greatest milestones in FBS history. Let's take a look at some of those unbreakable college football records.

Interceptions Thrown in One Game

John Reaves, Florida (9)

Despite holding one of the worst single-game records in college football history, John Reaves was actually a very good quarterback for the Florida Gators. They even finished 9-1-1 during the 1969 season, but their sole loss was an ugly one.

Going against a ranked Auburn team, Reaves threw nine interceptions on 66 pass attempts. No sane head coach in today's game would keep rolling their quarterback out there after throwing four or five interceptions, making this a record that will never get close to being topped.


Most Sacks In One Season

Derrick Thomas, Alabama (27)

Prior to a Pro Football Hall of Fame career with the Kansas City Chiefs, Derrick Thomas was an unstoppable force for the Alabama Crimson Tide. His 27 sacks should be an NCAA record, but sacks weren't registered as an official statistic until 2000.

No player has come close to Thomas' record, with Terrell Suggs coming closest over the last couple of decades with 24 sacks at Arizona State back in 2002. For reference, Wisconsin's Nick Herbig and Eastern Michigan's Jose Ramirez were tied for the most sacks in college football during the 2022 with 12 each.

In short, no one is coming close to this many sacks any time soon.


Career Receiving Yards

Corey Davis, Western Michigan (5,278)

With the way the college football landscape is changing, star wideouts aren't likely to stay their entire four years of college when they start to put up crazy numbers. Even if they do stay all four years, they'll have a hard time ever eclipsing what Corey Davis was able to do at Western Michigan.

After racking up 941 receiving yards as a freshman, Davis went on to have three straight seasons with at least 1,400 yards to go along with 52 career receiving touchdowns. Nevada's Trevor Insley is the only other receiver to ever eclipse 5,000 yards, and it seems almost impossible for anyone else to get close to that number, even with today's modern pass-heavy offenses.


Career Touchdowns Responsible For

Case Keenum, Houston (178)

Even with today's high-scoring offenses, no one has yet come close to Case Keenum's touchdown record.

From 2007 to 2011, Keenum racked up 178 total touchdowns. Although he played five seasons for the Cougars, he only racked up five total in a shortened 2010 campaign, meaning that he averaged over 43 total touchdowns per season as a starter. Even Baker Mayfield couldn't come close to Keenum during his college career, racking up 153 total touchdowns.

Sam Hartman has a chance to come close with 128 total TDs heading into 2023, but he'll need an unbelievable season with Notre Dame to come close to breaking this record.


Margin Of Victory

Georgia Tech (222 points)

In one is easily the most disrespectful score in football history, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets were ruthless against Cumberland Gap out of Tennessee. Head coach John Heisman came into the game with vengeance on his mind after the baseball team, which he also coached, lost 22-0 to the other school the year prior. Georgia Tech continued to run the score up, despite the second half being shortened.

Given the microscope teams and coaches are under in today's game, no program would ever think of running up the score like this at the FBS level.


Longest Winning Streak

Oklahoma (47 games)

Even with national powerhouses like Alabama and Georgia in recent years, no team has come close to the undefeated streak that the Oklahoma Sooners had during the 1950s. From 1953 to 1957, the Sooners won 47 straight games to go along with two national championships.

Other programs like USC and Miami have gotten win streaks up into the 30s, but this nearly 70-year-old streak looks to be untouchable in today's game.
