For the first time since 2010, the Knights had back-to-back 100+ yard receiving performances. In the season opener, sophomore Breshad Perriman caught three passes for 113 yards and one touchdown. On Friday night against FIU, junior Rannell Hall caught four passes for 127 yards.

The previous two players to accomplish that were Jamar Newsome with 123 receiving yards against Houston and the next week against Southern Miss Ronnie Weaver had 100 yards.

Junior quarterback Blake Bortles says he's very happy for his teammates' accomplishments and their abilities on the field.

"It's awesome! To be able to know you can a five yard hitch route or something short and they can take it the distance," said Bortles. "It's a huge bonus to have and that adds another element to our offense."

"They're doing a great job running routes and the offensive line has done a phenomenal job of blocking up front," continued Bortles. "I just have to get the ball to the right places."

Hall had a couple longs catches, which opened up the offense early on, including a 59-yard reception in the second quarter.

"It's really good to get things rolling," said junior center Joey Grant about Hall's big play ability. "Anytime that an offense can get rolling like that it really gets a lot of momentum going and it really carries through the whole game."
