Luke Kuechly Tackle Tracker: Post UMass Game

via bringyourchampionstheyreourmeat.blogspot.com

Yesterday Luke Kuechly had an otherwise pedestrian 11 tackles -- 1 solo, 10 assists -- in BC's 45-17 win over UMass, upping his season total to nation-leading tackle total to 69 after the first four games of the season. Kuechly has now tallied 10 or more tackles in 26 consecutive games, the longest active streak of double-digit tackles in the country.

Kuechly's 23 tackles against Duke -- 23! -- is tied with Stephen Boyd (1993) for the second highest single game tackle total in school history. However, Kuechly going over 20 tackles in a game this season was completely predictable

He already owns the school's record for tackles in a single season with 183 in 2010, and is currently on pace to best that total by 20+ tackles.

At his current pace, Kuechly is set to finish with 207 tackles on the year, which would be a new college football single-season record, eclipsing Texas Tech's Lawrence Flugence's record of 193 set in 2002. Keep in mind Flugence needed 14 games to set the current NCAA record while Kuechly will likely play two less games this season. Though the @IndyBowl recently started following us on Twitter, so you're saying there's a chance?
