Coming into the Auburn Tigers matchup with the Arkansas Razorbacks, Anders Carlson had the opportunity to be a part of history.
The NCAA record for the most successful point-after attempts in a row was on the line. It was previously held by Florida State from 2012-2016 when they hit 303 PATs consecutively. For Auburn, the streak began back in 2013 with Cody Parkey, who went 66-for-67 on PATs.
Carlson hit his first four PATs in Auburn's 51-10 victory at Arkansas Saturday, which gave the Tigers the record, 304 successful PATs in a row.
“I’m just a small part of that,” Carlson said after the game, making sure to credit past kickers and holders as well as the current holders.
Anders’ older brother, Daniel Carlson, did not miss a PAT during his four years at Auburn, going 198-for-198.
Just after breaking the record, Anders missed the next extra point, setting the record exactly at 304. He did go on to hit his next two PATs to finish the game.
