Shea Patterson breaks record held by Tom Brady during win over MSU

Saturday afternoon was officially a rout at the Big House as the Michigan Wolverines had their way with their in-state rivals, defeating the Michigan State Spartans by a 44-10 final.

Quarterback Shea Patterson had one of his best showings wearing the maize and blue, throwing for 384 yards while going 24-for-33 and four touchdowns. And in doing so, he broke a record that was previously held by an individual named Tom Brady.

Patterson’s 384 passing yards against the Spartans were the most by a Michigan quarterback since Brady’s 285 in 1999.

“We can start with Shea,” head coach Jim Harbaugh explained when asked who impressed him. “Getting the ball to nine different receivers. Somebody told me he broke a record for the most passing yards by a Michigan quarterback in a Michigan State game – 384, and the old record was 285 by Tom Brady. [He broke the record] by 99 yards. I’d call that a whale of a game. That’s a heck of a game by the kid.”
