Maxwell and Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award semifinalist Buechele leads the conference and ranks in the top-10 nationally in passing yards (3,195) and touchdowns (28), and has thrown multiple touchdowns in an SMU-record tying nine straight games.

Among active FBS leaders, he is seventh in completions per game (19.76), eighth in passing yards per game (237.3), 12th in passing yards (7,831), 13th in touchdown passes (58) and 15th in completion percentage (.629) and total offense (8,152).

Biletnikoff Award semifinalist Proche leads the nation with 8.8 receptions per game and is fifth with 12 touchdowns and 10th with 1,008 receiving yards.

He set the SMU career receiving touchdowns record at 36, surpassing Emmanuel Sanders, and is second all-time at SMU in receiving yards with 3,732. In the win over ECU, he posted his ninth straight game with a receiving touchdown, setting an SMU record, and has posted four 100-yard games and four games with 10+ receptions this season.

Among active FBS receivers, Proche is first in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, while ranking third in receptions per game (5.91) and fourth in receiving yards per game (79.4).
