USC sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee picked up the five receptions he needed to break current teammate Robert Woods' Pac-12 receptions record of 111 receptions on Saturday in USC's loss to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Lee now owns both the Pac-12 receptions and yardage records. He already broke the yardage record previously held by former Trojan Johnnie Morton prior to Saturday's game. Morton held the record since 1993.

Woods had seven receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown on Saturday while Lee finished with five catches for 75 yards. It was the first time Lee didn't score a touchdown in a game since Oct. 13 against Washington when he was held to only two catches for 32 yards.

Lee has 112 catches for 1,680 yards and 14 touchdowns heading into whatever bowl game the Trojans end up playing in. As a freshman, Lee finished with 73 catches, 1,143 yards and 11 touchdowns.
