TCU defensive end Mat Boesen made a name for himself as a senior during the 2017 college football season.
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound native of Torrance, Calif. recorded a TCU single-game record 5.5 sacks vs. Baylor on Nov. 24, and was named a Sports Illustrated first-team All-American at the conclusion of the regular season.
None of his statistics, however, may have stood out more than his numbers when it came to putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
Boesen was responsible 51 quarterback pressures during the 2017 season. It was the most recorded by any Big 12 defender, per Pro Football Focus.

Boesen ended the year with 11.5 total sacks. The Baylor game in November also saw him reach a season-high mark in single-game tackles, as he ended the day with 8 solo tackles and 10 total tackles.
Boesen ended his collegiate career with 16.5 sacks and 93 total tackles across three seasons between Boise State (2015) and TCU (2016-17). 64 of those total tackles came during his senior season as a Horned Frog.
