Perhaps some more obscure statistics regarding Al Brenner is that while playing in the CFL for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats he intercepted Joe Theismann 4 times in one game when Theismann played for the Toronto Argonauts and dropped a fifth which would have tied, at the time, Bud Grant's pro record of 5. Brenner also was part of "The Game of the Century", where both Michigan State and Notre Dame were ranked number 1 in the country and went to a 10-10 tie in 1966.
