Tulsa's Mills sets single-season tight end yards record
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tulsa tight end Garrett Mills broke the NCAA record for most receiving yards by a tight end in a season Saturday in the Conference USA championship game against Central Florida.
Mills' 29-yard touchdown catch with 2:06 left in the opening half gave him 1,164 yards for the year, eclipsing the mark of 1,156 set by Brigham Young's Chris Smith in 1990.
Mills entered the game with 75 catches, the most among Division I-A tight ends this season.
