Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith broke Alabama's single-game receiving touchdown and yardage marks thanks to a spectacular performance in which he snagged 11 passes for 274 yards and five scores in a 59-31 win over Ole Miss on Saturday.
The 6'1", 175-pound junior snatched eight passes for 221 yards and four scores in the first half alone. He entered Saturday with 20 receptions for 263 yards and three touchdowns in four games.
The breakout star opened the scoring with a 74-yard touchdown after he caught a Tua Tagovailoa pass and turned on the afterburners.
Smith may have saved his best work for his second touchdown when he took a pass on a crossing route, outran two defenders, stayed in bounds and split two other Rebels for a 25-yard score:
He showcased his after-the-catch skills once again by snagging a quick pass, juking one defender and sprinting down the sideline for a 23-yard touchdown:
The Alabama wideout then capped off his half by going deep for a 33-yard score thanks in part to a perfect Tagovailoa throw:
Per Mike Rodak of AL.com, Smith set the school record for most receiving touchdowns in a game with his fourth score:
In the second half, Smith picked up where he left off with a 27-yard touchdown reception, which gave him the Alabama single-game receiving yardage record:
That gave Smith nine receptions for 248 yards and five touchdowns with 10:49 left in the third. He added two more catches for 26 yards in the fourth.
Smith also surpassed previous single-game career highs of eight receptions, 136 yards and two touchdowns, all of which came against South Carolina on Sept. 14.
