Twice named a consensus All-American and winner of the 1990 Heisman Trophy, Detmer's 15,031 career passing yards and 121 touchdowns were NCAA bests at the time, and the gunslinger still holds nine NCAA records. A three-time First Team All-WAC performer, Detmer led College Football Hall of Fame coach LaVell Edwards' teams to three conference championships, four bowl games, three AP top 25 finishes and a 28-21 win over top-ranked and defending national champion Miami on Sept. 8, 1990. The Cougars compiled a 37-13-2 overall record during the Detmer years. The NCAA Today's Top VI Award recipient still holds 10 school records, including the season and career marks for total offense, passing yards and 400-yard games.
