He also set new school records for completions (326), attempts (516) and completion percentage (63.2), and threw for 26 touchdowns, the fourth most in school history. The tallest quarterback in the nation last year at 6 feet 8 inches, Osweiler has played in 25 career games, including 15 as the starter, and has thrown for 5,082 yards and 33 touchdowns in his three-year ASU career. He's also added four rushing touchdowns. Six of Osweiler's seven career 300-yard passing games came during the 2011 season and he topped the 350-yard mark four times. He threw for a career-high 487 yards against Arizona, tying a school record with his 63 pass attempts, and amassed 395 passing yards in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas. He's thrown for three or more touchdowns four times, three of which came last season, including in wins over then-No. 21 Missouri and on the road against Utah. Brock Osweiler
