Greg McElroy held the old record with 20 in 2010.
“It means a lot with all the tradition and all the great quarterbacks that have played here,” McCarron said. “Like I said, and like I will always say, none of that would be possible without my great offensive line and my great wide receivers that I have out there making plays for me.”
McCarron also had a 24-yard run, which was his career high. As he got past the line, he followed guard Anthony Steen. But as he tried to find more room, he couldn’t get past his teammate.
“I thought I was going to score. I had one guy to beat, and he was kind of in my way,” McCarron said, smiling. “I told him next time try to run and try to take somebody else and not just fall.”
