Matt Nichols is the greatest player in EWU history

Matt Nichols has had quite the career at Eastern Washington University as today he set the Big Sky Conference career record for total offense. Yeah that's a big deal or something...

A career-long 52-yard touchdown run was just part of a sensational day for Eastern Washington University senior quarterback Matt Nichols as he broke the Big Sky Conference career record for total offense in 18th-ranked EWU's easy 41-28 non-conference football victory over Southern Utah Saturday (Nov. 14) at Eccles Coliseum in Cedar City, Utah.

Nichols passed for 380 yards and four touchdowns to finish with 455 yards of total offense and account for five TDs on the day. He now has 12,440 yards in his 45-game career, breaking the 17-year-old record of 12,287 held by Weber State's Jamie Martin (1989-92).

Oh, and Eastern Washington still has it's post-season hopes alive, which is more than what they had at the beginning of the season. Here's hoping the best for Mr. Nichols.

  1. did you forget how horrible of a year he had his freshman year. any qb at any level with four years as a starter on a decent team will break records. it does not mean they are the greatest player ever.
