NCAA Record Watch Khalil Mack

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

This past Tuesday against Miami Khalil Mack's three forced fumbles left five all time NCAA greats in his wake. His three tackles for loss brought him tantalizingly close to the all time NCAA record in that category. Mack is two and a half tackles for loss away from Catching Jason Babin who used to play for Western Michigan.

# Player TFL Needs # NCAA FF M+
1 Jason Babin, W. Michigan 75 2.5 1 Khalil Mack, Buffalo. 16 2
2 Khalil Mack, Buffalo 72.5 2 Antwan Peek, Cincinnati 2000-02 14
3 George Selvie, South Florida 69 2 Terrell Suggs, Arizona St. 2000-02 14
2 Kenechi Udeze, USC 2001-03 14
2 Ryan Kerrigan, Purdue 2007-10 14
2 Cordarro Law, Southern Miss 2008-11 14

Two and a half TFL's for most players would be a very good night but for Khalil Mack it would be just another day. In 45 career games played Mack has had three or more Tackles for loss 13 times. This season Bowling Green is giving up more than six tackles for loss per game so there is a chance Mack Breaks the record on Friday while we are all digesting Turkey.

In addition to the Forced Fumbles and Tackles for loss records Mack hold the Buffalo record for sacks. He has 28.5 career sacks which also ties him for 25th all time in the NCAA. Three and a half more this season would bring Mack into the top ten all time. If he holds to his career average of 0.6 sacks per game he will end up around 13th all time.

Player Sacks Way
1 Khalil Mack 28.5 13.5
2 Rich Dadabo 24 9
2 Vince Canos 24 9
4 Trevor Scott 19 4
5 Steven Means 18.5 3.5
5 Dave May 18 3
7 Keith Hansen 16 1
8 Hardy Mitchell 15.5 0.5
9 Colby Way 15

The other place his name is showing up in Buffalo's books is total tackles and tackles for loss. It's near impossible that he will crack the top three in either category but the Buffalo Senior might climb a little bit more this year/
