UCF Alumnus Brandon Marshall Sets NFL Reception Record

UCF football alum Brandon Marshall dominated the Denver Broncos' offense Sunday afternoon, as his 21 catches in one game broke an NFL record previously held by Terrell Owens.


Marshall ushered his team to the best of his ability, but his clutch play was in vain.

The Broncos fell to the Indianapolis Colts, 28-16.

Some of the more impressive moments in Marshall's game play Sunday came when he gained seven yards on a fourth-down play before lateraling to lineman Chris Kuper for seven more yards.


In addition, Marshall gained 200 yards and two touchdowns, making him the sole proprietor of Denver's offensive battle.

In addition to breaking the NFL record, Marshall surpassed his team record of 18 catches in one game, set on Sept. 14, 2008 against San Diego.

“I'd definitely trade in a couple of those catches for a win,” Marshall said after the game. The Broncos are currently 8-5, and second in the AFC West race.

UCF would have a very similar record to the Broncos if their season ended now. The Knights' record in 2009 was 8-4, which has resulted in a St. Petersburg Bowl berth vs. Rutgers this coming Saturday, Dec. 19, in St. Petersburg, Fla.


There are still tickets available, as UCF Athletics has predicted 20,000 of a possible 28,000 Knights fans will be in attendance. Go to UCFBowl.com for more information.
