Post-Baylor Jordan Shipley Record Watch

In the first installment, Shipley's status on the UT receiving records was as follows:
Receptions:
Most receptions, game: Shipley already owns this with 15.
Most receptions, season: Kwame had 100, and Ship has 75 so far.
Most receptions, career: Big Roy had 241, and Ship has 207 so far.

Yards:
Most yards, game: Shipley already owns this with 273.
Most yards, season: Kwame had 1188, and Ship has 1050 so far.
Most yards, career: Big Roy has 3866, and Ship (now 3rd place all-time) has 2756.

Touchdowns:
Most TDs, game: McGarity has it at 4
Most TDs, season: Big Roy and Sweed had 12 in one season; Shipley has six so far.
Most TDs, career: Big Roy had 36; Shipley has 28 so far.

Misc.:
100-yd. games in a season: Ship has five so far, and the record is seven.

If he were to get on a roll, Shipley could own almost every game, season, and career record for catches, yards, and touchdowns. The least likely are the career yardage mark (he’d need more than a thousand yards in five games) and the single-game touchdown mark. And this doesn’t even take into account any all-purpose records he might have.

Post-Baylor, here's how he ranks on the receiving charts.

 

Receptions:
Most receptions, game: Shipley already owns this with 15.
Most receptions, season: Kwame had 100, and Ship has 81 so far (needs 20 in four games)
Most receptions, career: Big Roy had 241, and Ship has 213 so far (needs 39 in four games)

Yards:
Most yards, game: Shipley already owns this with 273.
Most yards, season: Kwame had 1188, and Ship has 1096 so far (needs 93 in four games).
Most yards, career: Big Roy has 3866, and Ship (now 3rd place all-time) has 2802 (needs 865 in four games). This is almost certainly not going to fall to JS this year; however, he has a very good shot at getting second-place, which is currently 3032 by Mike Adams (needs 231 in four games).

Touchdowns:
Most TDs, game: McGarity has it at 4; hard to say whether Shipley will ever have a shot at this.
Most TDs, season: Big Roy and Sweed each had 12 in a season; Shipley almost tied it with 11 last year, and has eight this season so far (needs five in four games).
Most TDs, career: Big Roy had 36; Shipley has 30 so far (needs 7TD in four games).

So the career receptions, career yards, TDs in a game, and career TDs look like the hardest ones to achieve.  Shipley looks almost certain to break all the others.
