  Wide receiver Elijah Moore didn't have Ole Miss records on his mind. He wanted to set Lane Kiffin records. Moore went into halftime of Ole Miss' 54-21 win over Vanderbilt with 12 catches for 223 yards and three touchdowns. That's not a misprint. The junior outgained Vanderbilt by 29 yards on his own in the first two quarters. So coming out of halftime, Moore knew he was poised to slice through the school record books. But his sights were less on Ole Miss' history, and more on the award-winning receivers in his head coach's past. "He asked me at the start of the third quarter 'What's the most you've ever had from a wide receiver?" Kiffin said. "I think he wanted to break the record I'd been around. I told him I think [former USC receiver] Marqise Lee against Arizona had 340 in a game we actually lost. He thought he was really good. He had 220 at the half so he had a long ways to go."

Moore didn't get to Lee's 345-yard mark to break the Kiffin record. But he broke or matched a slew of Ole Miss records. He caught 14 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns. The performance broke the Ole Miss single-game record for receiving yards and matched the school records for receiving touchdowns and receptions. And he did all that despite making his last catch with more than 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter. "Records are meant to be broken," Moore said. "But the overall goal is just to win. So as long as we got that through, that's the most important thing." - The Clarion Ledger
