Earlier this week I said if USC wide receiver Marqise Lee sticks around long enough he’d probably break a few records, like Matt Barkley and Robert Woods did last Saturday against Colorado. I was thinking a bit further down the road than today.
USC WR Marqise Lee with a 44-yard TD catch gives him 299 yards receiving, a new @pac12 single game record.

Lee finished the game with 345 yards, fifth most in FBS history. The previous Pac-12 record of 293 yards was set by Oregon State’s Mike Hass against Boise State in 2004. R. Jay Soward held the USC record with a 260-yard day against UCLA in 1996.
