The NCAA record for the most tackles in a season is held by Kevin Talley. He recorded 195 with Norfolk State in 2003. However, Lawrence Flugence holds the FBS (Division 1) record with 193 tackles in a season for Texas Tech in 2002.
The NFL does not keep official stats (records) for most tackles for a game or season. I'm not sure why but I think it's because it's so subject to judgment. Figuring who gets a tackle and who gets the assist can be very difficult and easily argued. ----------- The most tackles I have ever seen credited to one player in a season is Tommy Nobis, LB, Atlanta Falcons. In 1966 he unofficially recorded 294 tackles, as a rookie. The unofficial season record, recognized by the league, is 214 tackles by Hardy Nickerson, LB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1993. 222 by Eugene Lockhart of the Dallas Cowboys back in 1989.
The player who tackles the player with the ball will be credited. If 2 people tackle the player with the ball at the same time they will each be credited with 1/2 a tackle.
