Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Alabama junior Amari Cooper has broken Julio Jones' 2010 school record for yards receiving in a season.
    
Cooper turned a short pass into a 9-yard gain in the first quarter Saturday night at LSU, giving him 1,141 yards this season. He entered the game just a yard behind Jones' mark of 1,133.
    
With the catch, Cooper also pulled within 47 yards of eclipsing D.J. Hall's career Crimson Tide yards receiving mark of 2,923.
    
Cooper also entered the game needing eight more catches to break Jones' Alabama single-season receptions record of 78, also set in 2010.
