It seems the easiest way for a college receiver to rack up hundreds of career receptions is to, quite simply, play for a pass-happy offense.

As the list below shows, receivers who have played in pass-first systems—think Hawaii, Purdue, of Louisiana Tech—have historically posted better numbers than their counterparts at other schools.

Topping the list of college football's all-time receptions leaders is Purdue's Taylor Stubblefield, who caught 316 balls between 2001 and 2004 while playing for Joe Tiller. The rest of the NCAA's all-time pass-catchers can be seen here:

Taylor Stubblefield, Purdue (2001-04): 316 catches / 3,433 yards
Josh Davis, Marshall (2001-04): 306 / 3,889
