Prior to the 2002 season, bowl statistics were not considered to be part of the official record. However, schools were not consistent in the way that they handled this, as in some cases bowl statistics were included and in others they were not. When possible, bowl statistics have been "backed out" of the school's statistics. We will try to note all cases where bowl statistics have been included in the player's statistics.
