Floyd would trade records for win
Michael Floyd won't remember the record he broke and another he tied. He'll only remember the numbing defeat.
Floyd became Notre Dame's career leader in receiving yards during Notre Dame's 35-31 loss to Michigan on Saturday night in Michigan Stadium, surpassing the record of 2,707 set by former teammate Golden Tate. By catching 13 passes for 159 yards, Floyd also surpassed 100 receiving yards for the 15th time, tying Tate for the most in school history.
Floyd also had 10 or more catches for the second straight week, which is another first in his career, although the records provided little solace.
"You think you have the game in your hand and we fell short," Floyd said. "We can't blame anybody for this loss. This is a team loss."
Tate is now a receiver for the Seattle Seahawks.
