BIRMINGHAM, Ala. >> Case Keenum has passed Timmy Chang to become the most prolific passer in NCAA history.

Keenum, a Houston senior, completed a 16-yard pass to Justin Johnson in the third quarter on Saturday night against UAB to pass Chang's record of 17,072 yards for Hawaii from 2000 to 2004.

Keenum began the night 267 yards away from matching Chang's mark. Keenum already holds the NCAA career records for TD passes and total offense for No. 14 Houston.

Keenum, who threw nine TD passes against Rice last week, completed his first 11 passes against UAB.  He finished the game with 407 passing yards and 17, 212 career yards passing. He also scored his first two rushing touchdowns of the season.

Timmy Chang often only played 1/2 the game - If he had played more his record would have never been reached. Its the Hawaii mentality to provide the opposing team a chance to save face. Sometimes it backfires like UHs last game...
