Note: Before 2000, pass breakups did not include pass interceptions in the total number of breakups, per NCAA rules. In the 2000 season, interceptions were included in the total. (In addition to his 50 career breakups from 1996 to 1999, Ralph Brown had seven interceptions). In 2001, the rule changed back and pass breakups did not include interceptions, per NCAA rules.
