Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown breaks Rebels’ single-game receiving yards record

Think of all the great wide receivers in Ole Miss history.

Just to name a few: Shay Hodge, Chris Collins, Laquon Treadwell, Donte Moncrief, Evan Engram. None of them have as many yards in a single game as A.J. Brown did on Saturday night against South Alabama.

Brown broke Eddie Small’s record of 210 yards that stood since 1993.

Brown added two touchdowns to his count as well as eight receptions, good for over 20 yards per catch. He did it against a no-joke team in South Alabama, too. The Jaguars upset Mississippi State in 2016.

After tallying 412 yards on 29 receptions as a freshman, Brown is already over half way toward his total yardage from last season after one game. He also tied his touchdown total from 2016 on Saturday. It’s clear Shea Patterson likes Brown as a target, he could play a more signifcant role in the Rebels plans this season if his first performance is any indication.
