Maehl’s 178 career catches equaled Sammie Parker’s for most in school history. His 24 career touchdown catches also tied a school record. His 81-yard reception in the BCS Championship Game was the longest in the history of the game. His senior season with 1,076 yards ranks third all-time in school history and was just the eighth time a receiver had gone over the 1,000-yard mark.
