Tim Tebow was honored by Florida Saturday afternoon in The Swamp, but it was another player who was eclipsing the former Heisman Trophy winner in the record books and on the field.
Late in the fourth quarter of Florida Atlantic’s 52-33 win over Old Dominion, Devin Singletary scored on a 44-yard touchdown run. It was the running back’s 14th touchdown of the season — he leads all FBS players in that category — and the 58th of his collegiate career.
The latter of his two touchdowns in the game moved him past both Tebow and San Diego State great Marshall Faulk for 13th place on the all-time list in FBS history.
And, as the Palm Beach Post pointed out, Singletary is now the all-time leader in that category for those who played at an FBS school in the state of Florida.
With his second rushing touchdown on Saturday night, Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary passed former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow for the most rushing touchdowns by any player who attended a Florida FBS school.
In his last 17 games dating back to Week 4 of last season, Singletary has accounted for 44 rushing touchdowns. He’s scored five touchdowns once, four twice, three six times and two on five occasions in that span.
