Last season, Tiger quarterback Paxton Lynch set a U of M record for total touchdowns with 35 (22 passing, 13 rushing). He became just the second Memphis player to pass for at least 10 touchdowns and run for at least 10 touchdowns in the same season. Who was the first?
In 1961, James Earl Wright tossed 11 touchdown passes (among a total of 35 completions) and ran for 10 scores. That Tiger team finished 8-2 and outscored its opponents 332-75.
