Nebraska's Nate Swift - Record Setting Performance Against Baylor

Nate Swift broke Johnny Rodgers' all-time reception record last weekend against Baylor. The record had stood for 36 years, and as Rodgers made sure to remind everyone - the Jet only played for three years.

Swift entered this season in fourth-place in all-time receptions with 103. He was at number three in career receiving yardage at 1,535 and third in career 100 yard games.

Here's the current standings on three reception records. Swift should catch Rodgers in total receiving yardage, and he has a shot at the other two.

Marlon Lucky continues to move up the all-time reception charts. He should move into at least third place this season.
