Broyles breaks NCAA catch record

BY foxsports • October 15, 2011

Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles broke the NCAA record for career receptions Saturday night, moving to 317 catches during the first half against Kansas.

The previous record of 316 was set by Taylor Stubblefield at Purdue between 2001 and 2004.

Broyles, a senior, set the new mark with a 57-yard touchdown reception with 7:50 to go in the second quarter.

He finished the game with 13 catches for 217 yards and two touchdowns as the Sooners romped to a 47-17 win.

"I don't have any more adjectives to describe Ryan Broyles," Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said, according to USA Today. "He's out of this world."

Broyles also set a new Big 12 record in the game, passing Oklahoma State's Rashaun Woods with his 43rd career touchdown reception.
