McDougal was recruited out of Blanche Ely High School in Pompano Beach, Florida by the University of Notre Dame, where he backed up starting quarterback Rick Mirer for three years, from 1990-1992. In the fall of his senior year, head coach Lou Holtz announced that heralded incoming freshman Ron Powlus would get the nod as the new starting quarterback. However, when Powlus suffered a broken collarbone in one of the team's final scrimmages, McDougal was thrust into the position.

McDougal went on to become the most successful quarterback at Notre Dame to have only played one season. His second career start was an upset of the fifth-ranked Michigan Wolverines, and he proceeded to engineer a ten-game win streak, culminating the improbable run with a victory over top-ranked Florida State. Unfortunately, his lone career loss came one week later with a heartbreaking 41-39 defeat at the hands of Boston College. McDougal would finish his college career with a 24-21 win over Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl Classic, and Notre Dame would finish the season ranked #2 in both major polls—behind Florida State, whom they had defeated.

McDougal still holds the school records for career completion percentage (.622) and career pass efficiency (154.4), and until the 2008 Hawai'i Bowl was the last Notre Dame quarterback to have won a bowl game.


McDougal signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Rams in 1994,[1] but did not make the final roster. He played for the London Monarchs of the World League of American Football in 1995, then spent two seasons with the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers. In 1998, he joined the Milwaukee Mustangs of the Arena Football League,[2] backing up Todd Hammel for two years before becoming the starter in 2000. After setting Mustangs team records for touchdowns and yardage in 2000, he played for the XFL's Chicago Enforcers in spring 2001 before returning to the Mustangs midway through the 2001 season. He played the 2002 season with the Georgia Force before retiring.

On November 13, Notre Dame played Florida State in a matchup of unbeatens. The winner of this game, at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, was certain to play #3 Nebraska (which would then move up to #2) in the Orange Bowl for the national championship.

The next week, they faced Boston College in one of the best games of the year, the Notre Dame offense piled up 427 yards of offense, scored 5 touchdowns, including 22 points in the last 11 minutes, but the game would forever be remembered on Boston College's last drive as their kicker David Gordon hit a 41-yard field goal as time expired to win it 41–39, ending Notre Dame's bid for a national title.

Chicago Enforcers

The Chicago Enforcers were a short-lived American football team based at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois. This team was part of the failed XFL begun by Vince McMahon of WWE and by NBC, a major television network in the United States. NBC dropped the XFL after the first season in 2001 due to dismal ratings, and the dissolution of the league was announced shortly afterwards.

The team name references mob enforcers, alluding to Chicago's history of mafia influence. Their fight song would later become famous as the entrance music for professional wrestler Brock Lesnar, who had signed a contract with WWE but was yet to debut.The "Chicago Enforcers" name is currently used by the Chicago Police Department for their works team in the National Public Safety Football League.

Colorado State Rams football statistical leaders

The Colorado State Rams football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Colorado State Rams football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Rams represent Colorado State University in the NCAA's Mountain West Conference.

Although Colorado State began competing in intercollegiate football in, the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1951. Records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent, and they are generally not included in these lists.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

Since 1951, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.

The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.

Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002. The Rams have played in eight bowl games since this decision, giving many recent players an extra game to accumulate statistics.

In 2013, the Rams not only played in a bowl, but also played a 13-game regular season. The NCAA allows teams that play at Hawaii in a given season to schedule a 13th game. The Rams chose to take advantage of this rule.These lists are updated through the end of the 2016 season.
