Rodney Smith on verge of setting FSU receiving record

USA TODAY Sports

The wideout can set the school record for most consecutive games with a reception with a catch in the Orange Bowl to conclude his career.

In the final game of his career in the Orange Bowl, Rodney Smith can break the Florida State Seminoles' record for most consecutive games with a reception. The wide receiver needs just one catch in the contest to move past E.G. Green's 1997 record and extend his streak to 39 games.

The Miami native has a chance to break the record near where he grew up with the Orange Bowl being played at Miami Gardens:

"Ending my college career down there in a place where I'm from, we just want to end it in a 'W,'" Smith said. "That would be a blessing for us."

Smith's streak began back in the third game of the 2010 campaign on a four-yard reception from then-quarterback Christian Ponder. Since then, Smith has made 101 catches for 1,450 yards as the staple wideout in the Seminoles offense.

The senior has had a number of big performances during the streak. In 2010, he hauled in four receptions for 121 yards in a win over Clemson and had another impressive four-catch game in a loss to the Tigers in 2011, recording 118 yards and a touchdown. This season, he had a career-high nine receptions for 108 yards in a blowout victory over Boston College.
