5. Bo Nix
After transferring from Auburn, Nix took command of the Oregon offense and stormed his way into the history books – for the Ducks themselves and nationally. Setting the NCAA single-season completion percentage record in 2023, he set himself up for success when it came to total yards.
During his time in Eugene, Nix was able to accumulate 8,101 passing yards in just two years.
He set the school’s single-season record in 2023 when he threw for 4,508 yards as well as setting the single-season passing touchdown record at 45 TDs.
Nix sits in third for career passing touchdowns with 74 but fell short of breaking into the top 10 for most yards in a single game.
