Brotzman Kicks His Way Into the Top 10

Earlier in the year, it looked like Boise State's Kyle Brotzman might have a chance at the all-time NCAA scoring record. Now, he'll have to settle for being the top scoring kicker.

With 10 points against Idaho Saturday, Boise State kicker Kyle Brotzman passed four players and moved into 10th place in the history of college football in career points.

Brotzman shot past Jeremy Ito of Rutgers (400 points)Carlos Huerta of Miami (FL, 397), previous Western Athletic Conference record holder Jason Elam of Hawai'i (395) and Indiana's Anthony Thompson.

With five points, Brotzman can tie the Boise State school record of 408 set eight years ago by running back Brock Forsey. Forsey sits in 8th place and that would allow Brotzman to also pass Texas star running back Cedric Benson.

Beginning the season, Brotzman had an outside chance at setting the all-time record of 468 points. He began the year with 332 points and needed 136 to tie it. However, an injury that kept Kyle out of one game and the fact that Boise State has often gone for it on fourth down rather than kick a field goal with a big lead has kept his point total down.

Realistically then, Brotzman can reach #3, which would make Kyle the top scoring kicker of all time. That post is currently held by Art Carmody of Louisville. Carmody is 3rd all-time in career scoring with 433 points.
