Jaxon Smith-Njigba had a record-setting night in Pasadena.

After breaking David Boston's single-season receiving yardage record in the first half of the Rose Bowl, the sophomore star surpassed Terry Glenn's record of 253 receiving yards in a single game, set against Pittsburgh in 1995.

Smith-Njigba's 10th catch of the game, which also tied Parris Campbell's 90 catches in 2018 for the single-season receptions record, gave him 258 yards to set the new all-time mark.

Smith-Njigba's total also broke the Rose Bowl record for receiving yards in a single game.

Smith-Njigba finished the game with 15 receptions for 347 yards. His 15 receptions also tied his own single-game Ohio State receptions record which he set against Nebraska earlier this season.
