SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame's Michael Floyd is on the verge of a school record for receptions by a freshman.
Midway through the season, he's already tied the school record for TD catches for a freshman with four, and last week he was 7 yards short of becoming the first Irish freshman with three straight 100-yard receiving games.
Tim Brown, Notre Dame's last Heisman Trophy winner. Floyd's 426 yards receiving already is better than the 340 yards Brown had as a freshman.
The 6-3, 215-pound receiver has impressed teammates and his coaches with how quickly he's adapted to the college game.
