DeVonta Smith breaks Amari Cooper school, SEC record with 33 career receiving touchdowns
With his receiving touchdown early in the second quarter against Kentucky, DeVonta Smith broke the Alabama and SEC records for career receiving touchdowns. He was previously tied with Amari Cooper for the school record and Cooper and former Florida wide receiver Chris Doering for the SEC record.
The touchdown also helped Smith climb up the single-season receiving touchdowns list for a second time.
1. Amari Cooper (2014), 16
T-2. Jerry Jeudy (2018) and DeVonta Smith (2019), 14
T-4. Amari Cooper (2013) and Henry Ruggs III (2018), 11
T-6: Al Lary (1950); Jerry Jeudy (2019) and DeVonta Smith (2020), 10
T-8. Denis Homan (1967), 9
T-9. Al Bell (1985) and ArDarius Stewart (2016), 8.
Smith is unlikely to reach the NCAA record for career receiving touchdowns, but he could reasonably climb as high as the top 15. Here are the NCAA leaders.
