Florida State kicker Dustin Hopkins set the all-time NCAA scoring record for kickers on Saturday, according to Corey Clark of The Tallahassee Democrat.

Hopkins set the mark with a 26-yard field goal in the Seminoles' 41-14 win over Maryland. He has 448 points for his career.

He broke the record set by former Boise State kicker Kyle Brotzman. Brotzman finished his career with 439 points.

Hopkins has made 22-of-26 attempts this season. He has three games remaining to increase his NCAA record.

"I remember my freshman year when I was having trouble with extra points," Hopkins told The Tallahassee Democrat. "I missed four in my first four games, and some people were like, ‘Switch him out. Get another guy in there.' ... And then missing game-winners and different things, I see adversity that I've been through and then to see on the other side the success is truly a blessing."

No. 10 Florida State hosts No. 6 Florida on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
