Drew Brees, who just happened to go to Purdue, broke Dan Marino’s 27-year-old single season passing record tonight in a win over the Atlanta Falcons. Marino passed for 5,084 yards in 1984.

With the Saints already up 22 late in the fourth quarter, Brees broke the record on a 9-yard touchdown pass to Darren Sproles.

Brees is the Purdue and Big Ten career leader in passing attempts (1,678), passing completions (1,026), passing yards (11,792), passing touchdowns (90) and total offense (12,692).

Other than that, he didn’t do much at Purdue.
