Corey Coleman breaks Baylor single-season receiving touchdown record

Saturday October 17th, 2015

Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman broke the school’s record for touchdowns in a single-season with his 11-yard touchdown catch and 16th of the season  in the second quarter of Baylor’s 62–38 win over West Virginia

It only took Coleman six games to set a new team record. The junior has scored in every game this season, and finished the game with 10 catches for 199 yards and three touchdowns.

The previous record of 14 was set by current Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright in 2011. 

After Saturday’s practice, Wright took to Twitter to congratulate Coleman. 


West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen also spoke highly of Coleman after the game.
