Luke Kuechly Tackle Tracker: Post Virginia Tech Game

via bringyourchampionstheyreourmeat.blogspot.com

With this football team sitting at just 1-6 (0-4 ACC), it's time to focus on the real important things ... like Luke Kuechly's personal mission to tackle anything and everything in his way. On Saturday, Kuechly finished with 3 solo tackles and 16 assisted for a total of 19 against Virginia Tech. This upped his season tackle total to 118 (61 solo, 57 assisted) on the year.

Both his total tackles (118) and tackles per game average (16.86) lead the nation, a whole 18 tackles more than Tulane's Trent Mackey (100), who has played in one more game this season. Kuechly's per-game average is 2.86 higher than Akron's Brian Wagner. Also, Kuechly has now recorded 10+ tackles in 29 consecutive games, an NCAA record.

Kuechly is currently on pace to finish the year with 202 tackles, which would break Texas Tech's Lawrence Flugence's record of 193 set in 2002. If Kuechly finishes with 200+ tackles this season, he'd also break his own single-season (and school) record of 183 tackles, set last season.
