In 1970, he was the NCAA total offense leader with 2856 yards and set an NCAA record for most yards per play with 8.57. Sullivan also tied an NCAA record for most touchdowns responsible with 71. In his career, Sullivan threw 817 passes and completed 454 for 6,284 yards and 53 touchdowns. Former Alabama head coach Paul "Bear" Bryant said of Sullivan, "He does more things to beat you than any quarterback I've ever seen."
