LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech running back Taurean Henderson broke the NCAA record for career receptions by a running back, catching his 263rd pass during the first quarter Saturday against Kansas State.

Henderson entered the game needing one catch to pass Long Beach State's Mark Templeton for the career record. Templeton caught 262 passes from 1984-87.

It didn't take Henderson long to break the mark.

The record-breaker came on a screen pass to the left that gained 19 yards and a first down on the third play of the game for No. 13 Texas Tech.
