Tackles for a Loss Leaders

The two stat sets are since 1980 (as by this year most schools began recording sacks) and since 2000 (as the NCAA began including defensive stats in the official records). Also, players marked with an asterisk (*) are marked as such because their school included bowl game stats prior to 2002 (when bowl stats became official) and therefore the player's per game average has been subtracted for each bowl game in which the player participated. Some schools do not list tackles for a loss leaders so some players' stats have been approximated and marked with double asterisks (**). Enough information exists since 2000 to remove bowls and record TFL's, so these lists (the NCAA official ones) should be accurate.

National leaders are updated weekly. Conference and school leaders are updated yearly.

This site has the most comprehensive list of all-time college football individual statistical leaders online. Every stat on this site is based on the NCAA official rules, not the school or conference rules (no bowl games prior to 2002). Defensive stats, not including interceptions, did not become official until 2000. That is why you will see two lists; one is the official one since 2000, the other is more inclusive with the start date based on when most schools began reporting defensive stats.

Some defensive stats are marked with a single asterisk (*). This means that bowl games were included in the statistics reported by the school, therefore, the player's per game average has been subtracted for each bowl game played.

Other defensive stats are marked with two asterisks (**). This means the value is only approximated, based on the statistics that could be found.
