Boutte gained 308 yards receiving Saturday inside Tiger Stadium, breaking the LSU and Southeastern Conference records for a single game as he led LSU to a 53-48 win.

The previous LSU record was held by Josh Reed, who recorded 293 yards against Alabama in 2001.

Boutte broke the record on his final catch. With LSU trailing 48-46, Boutte caught a pass, maneuvered down the sideline and barreled into the end zone for a 45-yard touchdown to regain the lead.

Along with the record, Boutte finished the game with 14 receptions and three touchdowns.
