Statistical achievements[edit]

Michigan led the Big Ten Conference in quarterback sacks for all games (3.2 sacks per game), while Iowa led for conference games.[3]

John Navarre set numerous single-season school records that he would break the following season: attempts (448), surpassing his own record of 385 the prior season; completions (248), surpassing Tom Brady's 1998 and 1999 totals of 214; yards (2905), Jim Harbaugh's 1986 record of 2729. He also broke the career pass attempts record (910), surpassing Elvis Grbac's 835 in 1992, which he would extend the following year and which Chad Henne would eventually break in 2007. On September 14, Navarre joined Grbac as the only Wolverines with two career 4-touchdown passing games. On September 28, he tied Grbac with three such career outings and became the only Wolverine with two in the same season. Navarre broke Tom Brady's single-season yards per game record of 215.5 set in 1999 with a 223.5 average. He set the current single-season interception percentage record (1.56, minimum 100 attempts), surpassing Wally Gabler's 1965 record of 1.60. He also broke Harbaugh's 1986 single-season 200-yard game total of 8 with 9 and surpassed Brady's career total of 15 by posting his 18th in his junior year.[4]
