COLLEGE Park, Md. — Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins broke former Ohio State quarterback Joe Germaine’s record for most passing yards in a single season in school history in the second quarter against Maryland on Saturday.

Haskins completed a 68-yard touchdown pass to redshirt senior Terry McLaurin to break the record set by Germaine in 1998 with 3,330 passing yards.

The redshirt sophomore quarterback also set the record for single-game passing yards against Purdue on Oct. 20, throwing for 470 passing yards against the Boilermakers. He is also only one of two quarterbacks in Ohio State history, along with quarterback Art Schlichter, to throw for more than 400 yards in a single game. Haskins also broke the record for most completions (49) and pass attempts (73) in Ohio State’s loss to the Boilermakers.

Haskins also tied former Ohio State quarterbacks J.T. Barrett and Kenny Guiton throwing the most touchdowns in a single game with six against Indiana on Oct. 6.

Haskins has the opportunity to break Barrett’s record for most passing touchdowns in a single season. The redshirt sophomore quarterback needs two more touchdown passes to pass Barrett’s 35.
