Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles, the NCAA-record holder for most career receptions, will miss the rest of the season after tearing an ACL during the Sooners’ 41-25 win over Texas A&M on Saturday.

“He’s such a special, special player,” said Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops. “It’s deflating for him and for all of us. … Your heart drops when you first hear it.”

Broyles, an All-American and Biletnikoff Award finalist a year ago, weighed going to the NFL but chose to come back to Oklahoma this year for his senior season. He holds the career FBS record for receptions (349) and was closing in on the record for career receiving yards (5,005; Broyles finished with 4,586). Through nine games this season, Broyles had 83 catches for 1,157 yards and 10 touchdowns.
