D.J. Moore’s magnificent season has resulted in a program.
In Maryland’s season finale against Penn State, Moore caught his 78th pass of the season, breaking a single season record for the program. According to Roman Stubbs of the Washington Post, the previous record was held by Geroy Simon, who set the mark in 1994.
