This afternoon, Hardy, a former ECU walk-on, has six receptions for 79 yards. His Pirates team leads 17-3 heading into halftime.

With his 350th’s reception, Hardy is expected to smash the record with at least three more games left in his career.

He’s averaging nine receptions per game, and could finish with 380 to 400 receptions to end his career. Twice this season, he had at least 14 receptions.

Broyles set the mark on October 15th, 2011 with his 317th reception against the Kansas Jayhawks . He took the record from former Purdue wide receiver Taylor Stubblefield.

He ended his career with 349 receptions.
