In reality, the most incredible aspect of Hyatt’s record-breaking statistic is that there are still four more regular season games for the Tennessee wideout to continue to add to his numbers. At this pace, Hyatt could even get that number all the way up to 20 if things continue to go his way.
Here is how Hyatt’s numbers have broken down through the first nine weeks of the season:
Ball State – 2 receptions, 28 yards, 1 touchdown
Pittsburgh – 11 receptions, 73 yards, 0 touchdowns
Akron – 5 receptions, 166 yards, 2 touchdowns
Florida – 5 receptions, 58 yards, 0 touchdowns
LSU – 4 receptions, 63 yards, 2 touchdowns
Alabama – 6 receptions, 207 yards, 5 touchdowns
UT Martin – 7 receptions, 174 yards, 2 touchdowns
