Will Rogers breaks SEC record that has stood since 2013
Will Rogers has taken yet another step forward as a quarterback at Mississippi State this year, running Mike Leach’s Air Raid system as well as anyone has.
On Saturday against Arkansas, Rogers put his name into the SEC record books, passing Aaron Murray for the most completions in the history of the SEC.
As you can see below, ESPN Stats & Info notes that Rogers needed just 28 games to break the record that took Murray 52 games to accomplish:

Rogers now has 922 completions during his career, and it seems likely he’ll eclipse the 1,000-completions mark soon:

How many more completions can he add before his impressive career in Starkville is over? We’ll see how the rest of the 2022 season goes.
