Campanaro was honored with an appearance on the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll for his 11-catch, 122-yard display on Saturday. In addition, he was 2-2 through the air for 1 touchdown (to quarterback Tanner Price) making him just the third FBS player this millennium with two or more completions and eight or more receptions in a game. Campanaro's last reception of the afternoon was the 217th of his career, allowing him to take sole possession of the all-time Wake Forest receiving record previously held by Desmond Clark.
