UNLV's Wolfe becomes leading active receiver

Posted by ESPN.com’s Graham Watson

UNLV senior receiver Ryan Wolfe became the nation’s leading active receiver last weekend after grabbing eight catches for 96 yards and a touchdown at Wyoming.

He now has 240 career receptions, which is one more than Central Michigan senior Bryan Anderson, and 3,119 yards, which is just ahead of the 3,038 by Buffalo senior receiver Naaman Roosevelt.

Wolfe needs just 23 more catches to break J.R. Toliver’s (San Diego State) all-time Mountain West record of 262, which he set after playing from 1999 to 2002. Wolfe needs 516 more receiving yards to break David Anderson’s (Colorado State) league mark of 3,634 yards set from 2002 to 2005.

Through four games this fall, Wolfe has 31 receptions for 384 yards.
