Marqise Lee sets USC, Pac-12 records for receiving yards

Harry How

Marqise Lee has more receiving yards this season then anyone in the history of the Pac-12.

USC Trojans wide receiver Marqise Lee has put together a season for the ages in 2012, and on Saturday the sophomore broke a 19-year old school record. With his 39-yard catch in the fourth quarter against the UCLA Bruins and touchodwn catch two plays later, Lee has 1,561 receiving yards on the season, breaking the old Pac-12 record of 1,532 yards by Mike Hass of Oregon State in 2005.

Lee also has the USC school record, breaking the old mark set by Johnnie Morton in 1993.

Johnnie Morton 1993 1,520
Keyshawn Johnson 1995 1,434
Keyshawn Johnson 1994 1,362
Mike Williams 2003 1,314

Lee had just two catches for 30 yards in the first half, but that put him at the century mark in receptions for the season, just the third Trojans receiver ever to do so.
