It was quite a night for a current SEC receiver and a former one.

Ex-Tennessee wide out Da'Rick Rogers also had 303 yards receiving with 18 receptions, setting Tennessee Tech school records, in a double overtime loss to Southeast Missouri 41-38.

If the name sounds familiar, it's because Rogers led the SEC in receiving last season at Tennessee, but was indefinitely suspended by the Vols. Head coach Derek Dooley later said Rogers would not play for the Vols in 2012, so he was forced to transfer.

The most amazing part of the 303 yards receiving by both guys? Neither registers in the top 10 all time. A player with 300 yards receiving has happened only 25 times in both FBS and FCS, while happening only 10 times in FCS.

And if case you were wondering where the 18 receptions by Rogers ranks in FCS history -- it's tied for 11th all time. A guy named Jerry Rice holds the FCS record for receptions in a game with 24 in 1983.
