How good of a player is Randall Cobb?  Here is the stat that will blow your mind.  The non-kicker who has scored the most points in UK history is Craig Yeast, who scored 192 points in his career.  Randall Cobb, with 5 more touchdowns, will break Yeast’s record in just his junior season.  And you wonder why some would argue Cobb is the best player in UK history. 

Over/Under TD’s against Akron: 2.  And that’s only because he may only play 1 half.
