Vanderbilt WR Jordan Matthews becomes SEC all-time leader in receiving yards

The Texas A&M Aggies and the Vanderbilt Commodores are currently at the half, with the Aggies ahead on the Commodores in this SEC clash, 28-17.

We had a bit of history in this one so far, and it wasn’t made by the one that you would think of on this field.

No, it wasn’t reigning Heisman winner Johnny Manziel making more waves. In this one, Vanderbilt wide receiver Jordan Matthews has become the SEC leader all-time in receiving yards.


Matthews made the 17-yard grab in the second quarter from backup quarterback Patton Robinette, who’s filling in for the still-injured James Franklin.

Through one half of play in this one, Matthews has two catches for a total of 30 yards. They’re going to need a lot more in the second half as it’s looking as if the Commodores are going to have to outscore the Aggies.

But for this, a huge congratulations is in order for Matthews on this historic mark.
