Sooners’ Broyles becomes NCAA career catch leader

Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles has become the NCAA’s career

leader with his 317th catch during the first half of Saturday

night’s game against Kansas.

Broyles broke the receptions record set by Purdue’s Taylor

Stubblefield in 2004.

The senior from Norman, Okla., set the record with a 57-yard

touchdown catch from Landry Jones with 7:50 remaining in the first

half. Broyles caught the pass in stride on a post route and ran

untouched into the end zone. It was his fourth catch of the

night.

Broyles, who’s averaged more than seven catches per game in his

career, also moved into first place on the Big 12’s career TD

reception list with 43. He had been tied with former Oklahoma State

wide receiver Rashaun Woods.
