Saturday night, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins broke the record that no one really doubted he would.
And he did it as a sophomore.
That record is the all-time career receptions by a Washington tight end, which until Saturday night, was held by Mark Breuner with 95 receptions.
With seven receptions for 99 yards, Seferian-Jenkins made his 96th reception that night.
To tie the record, Seferian-Jenkins got his 95th career reception with a four yard, first down pass from Keith Price. His tie-breaking, record-setting, 96th reception came from an eight yard pass from Price.
Here's what Seferian-Jenkins and wide receiver Kasen Williams had to say about Seferian-Jenkins' night:
Seferian-Jenkins said: "I mean, obviously Mark Breuner, being the best tight end that has ever come through the University of Washington, it's really a blessing to be considered near him in any regard.
It's not so much about me, that I reached that number, because honestly, without Keith Price, without Kasen Williams, without DiAndre Campbell, without Bishop Sankey, without the offensive line, without Coach Sarkisian, without the defense, I wouldn't be anything. I wouldn't have any of these numbers, anything like that, so I look at it as more of a reflection of the people around me, why I've been able to be successful, and it's just a blessing because I have such great people around me."
Williams said: "I didn't even know he broke the record first off, because he doesn't really talk about it like that. But he's got great hands, he's got great route running ability and he's able to get open and he's able to come down with things that surprise me, and I see it every day at practice. So he's just a great player and a great talent."
