Having already set a new TCU record for touchdown receptions in a single season, TCU receiver Josh Doctson became the school's single-season receptions leader after collecting seven catches for 126 yards and a touchdown in the first half of Thursday night's game against West Virginia.

Doctson's seventh catch gave him the record of 67 as No. 5 TCU took a 23-10 lead into halftime.

Less than six minutes into the third quarter, he made it 69 with two more catches, including a 9-yard touchdown to push TCU's lead over the Mountaineers to 37-10.

The 6-foot-3 senior, a local product who initially attended Wyoming when he wasn't recruited by the Horned Frogs and then later walked-on to the TCU team after transferring, entered Thursday's game ranked No. 2 in the nation in receiving yards, No. 5 in receptions per game and No. 2 in touchdown catches.

Earlier this season, Doctson caught 18 passes in TCU's victory at Texas Tech. How high the record will climb is completely unpredictable. Doctson and the Frogs still have four regular-season games remaining.
