Doege Sets Record, Passes Pat White

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Saturday’s 31-23 win over the Texas Longhorns produced a new passing record for quarterback Jarret Doege.

Prior to the win, Doege had 2,448 yards through the air, enough to rank him No. 1 in the Big 12 Conference, but the redshirt senior wasn’t done.

He finished Saturday’s play with 290 passing yards, which brought his career passing yardage of 6,143 yards. He’s 238-of-335 through 11 games and has compiled 16 touchdowns this season. There’s still one more game to play this season, but Doege already surpassed last season’s 2,587 passing yards for 14 touchdowns.

This 6,143 yard milestone beats Pat White, who quarterbacked the Mountaineers from 2004-07 under head coach Rich Rodriguez. Doege now owns the fifth-most career passing yards in a Mountaineer uniform. Geno Smith sits at No. 1 with 11,662 between 2009-12; behind him are Marc Bulger (1996-99 / 8,153), Will Grier (2017-18 / 7,354), and Skyler Howard (2014-16 / 7,302).

Doege’s 556 career completions also rank him No. 3 in program history, behind Smith (988) and Bulger (630). He’s also West Virginia Football’s tenth-most efficient quarterback at connecting passes into the end zone, with 37 touchdowns. Additionally, his 859 passing attempts rank him, once more, fifth among WVU quarterbacks, and his total completions place him right behind Smith (988) and Bulger (630), with 556.

That 64.72 completion percentage is less than a single point away from passing White (64.8) in an additional category.
