Old Dominion QB sore after record-setting effort

Taylor Heinicke topped himself.

The quarterback at Old Dominion threw seven touchdown passes last week in a blowout victory against Campbell, and then made that look like nothing special in an encore performance to be talked about for a long time on Saturday.

He smashed NCAA Division I records by throwing for 730 yards, completing 55 of 79 attempts without being intercepted and led the Monarchs (4-0) back from a 23-point, third-quarter deficit to a 64-61 victory against New Hampshire.

Make that nationally ranked New Hampshire, one of the premier programs in the Colonial Athletic Association, the closest thing at the FCS level to what the Southeastern Conference is at the FBS level.

A day later, Heinicke credited the Monarchs' defense for coming through when it mattered most.
