Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson tallies 326 yards, 5 TDs

  Louisiana Tech wide receiver Carlos Henderson helped his team to victory with five touchdown catches.

In case you were busy watching one of the many ranked teams in action on Saturday, remember there is plenty of college football to be had all throughout the land. And sometimes it's the games with less hype that provide the best storylines. 

Case in point, this week's matchup between Louisiana Tech and Massachusetts.

Now a battle between an Independent school and a member of the Conference-USA might not set the world on fire, but La. Tech wideout Carlos Henderson certainly brought a little extra attention to this bout, which ended in a 56-28 win for La. Tech.

Henderson's line on the day included 12 catches for 326 yards and five touchdowns, tying a program record for receiving touchdowns in a single game.

However, Henderson's day pales in comparison to Louisiana Tech's all-time single-game receiving record, which is held by former Bulldogs wide receiver Troy Edwards. In 1998, Edwards tallied 405 yards in ballgame. Interestingly enough, Edwards record is also the NCAA single-game record for receiving yards.

Still a heck of day for Henderson and the Bulldogs. And a win always makes things a bit sweeter.
