On3 asks “Which Quarterbacks will throw for 3,000+ yards in 2022?”

The passing game in college football is as prevalent as ever. In fact, at least one quarterback has eclipsed the 5,000-yard mark 13 times since 2002. Between 1937 and 2001 that same mark was broken only one time. With breaking 4,000 and even 5,000-yard seasons becoming more coming every year, the act of breaking 3,000 yards has become an ordinary achievement. Nebraska though has had difficulty with the passing game over the years as the routine mark for 3,000+ yards has only occurred four times in all of school history. Joe Ganz holds the school record when he threw for 3,568 yards in 2008.

How many quarterbacks in all of college football will throw for 3,000 yards in 2022? A new list from on3 takes a detailed looked at every quarterback they think will break that mark this upcoming year. Scroll below to see each name broken down by conference as well as their stats from 2021.
