How college football's title-winning game manager QB went extinct 🏈
In 1992, Washington State's Drew Bledsoe threw for 3,246 passing yards -- third most in the country -- and led the Cougars to a surprising 9-3 record and top-15 finish. His big arm and big-for-the-era numbers earned him the top spot in the 1993 NFL draft. It didn't earn him the national title, though: that went to Alabama and its sensational defense. Bama quarterback Jay Barker (1,614 yards, 7 touchdowns, 9 interceptions) was primarily asked to stay out of the way and did so.
