The game preview is member-only, but aside from breaking down the game the other aspect to watch for is following Darden’s season.
Darden needs 15 more catches to tie Casey Fitzgerald for all time receptions at NT.
He needs one more touchdown to own the first place alone in career TD receptions here (he’s at 31).
He needs just 244 yards to tie Johnny Quinn as the all time yards pass catcher in NT history.
Darden is tied with himself, Rico Bussey Jr, and Casey Fitzgerald at 12 TDs for second place in the single season mark. One more would tie Ron Shanklin at 13. Two more would put him in sole first place.
Darden is 112 yards from 1000 on the year. The record is 1,322 by Fitzgerald in 2007.
