Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd had nine receptions for 137 yards in Saturday's 56-28 setback versus Georgia Tech.
This was only Boyd's second occurrence of cracking the century mark in receiving yards this season, but that can be blamed more on quarterbacking than his play. When the ball finds its way into Boyd's radius, he typically snatches it. Boyd has 45 catches for 651 yards and five touchdowns this year after collecting 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns last year as Tom Savage's go-to receiver. Oct 26 - 9:29 PM

Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd had six receptions for 86 yards and a score in Thursday's 21-16 win over Virginia Tech.

Boyd also had a nifty 29-yard completion to QB Chad Voytik on a trick play. Voytik has proven to be an adept scrambler, but he has a long way to go as a passer, costing Boyd production. The former four-star recruit, who was ranked by Rivals as the No. 12 WR in the 2013 class, finished with 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns last year as Tom Savage's go-to receiver. Boyd will be playing on Sundays one day, perhaps as soon as after next season.

Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd had three receptions for 63 yards in Saturday's loss to Virginia.

Boyd's star (or at least his production) is essentially latched onto the play of QB Chad Voytik. Thus far, that hasn't been great news. Boyd broke Larry Fitzgerald's freshman receiving yard record by collecting 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns last year, but that was with Tom Savage behind center. In 2014, he's got 30 catches for 428 yards and four touchdowns during a 3-3 start to the season.
Oct 6 - 9:59 PM

Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd had six receptions for 72 yards in Saturday's 21-10 upset loss to Akron.

The former four-star recruit is lagging behind last season's torrid statistical pace, but perhaps that was to be expected in the shift from Tom Savage to Chad Voytik. He's got 27 catches for 365 yards and four scores in 2014. Boyd broke Larry Fitzgerald's freshman receiving yard record by collecting 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns last year.
Sep 27 - 6:33 PM

Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd caught 10 passes for 153 yards in the school's 24-20 loss to Iowa.

Boyd is one of the nation's top receivers and will be frequently mentioned prior to next season. if only he had at least adequate quarterback play.
Sep 20 - 4:14 PM

Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd had four receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's victory against FIU.

With Pittsburgh breaking in a new quarterback, destroying opponents during a 3-0 start, and feeding the ball to James Conner, Boyd hasn't been targeted as often as he was last year during his true freshman campaign. He has only 11 catches for 140 yards, though, at four touchdowns, he's only three scores short of last year's total. Expect Boyd to become a larger part of the offense as Chad Voytik becomes more comfortable and Pittsburgh finds itself in closer ACC games. Boyd finished his freshman season with 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns, breaking Larry Fitzgerald's record for receiving yards by a Pitt freshman.
Sep 14 - 7:08 PM

Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd had five receptions for 72 yards and a pair of scores in Friday's 30-20 victory against Boston College.

Boyd finished his true freshman season with 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns, breaking Larry Fitzgerald's record for receiving yards by a Pitt freshman. The former four-star recruit, ranked by Rivals as the No. 12 wide receiver in the 2013 class, is one of the nation's most dangerous perimeter threats. If Chad Voytik develops, watch out.
Sep 5 - 11:12 PM

Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd is expected to play against Boston College despite dislocating his finger versus Delaware.

Boyd has been practicing with the team this week, so it has been a quick turnaround. The receiver is one of the best in the country, but his stats might not show it thanks to sub-par quarterback play.
Sep 3 - 9:49 AM

Pittsburgh sophomore WR Tyler Boyd suffered a dislocated finger on his left hand against Delaware and did not return.

Before he left, Boyd recorded three receptions for 20 yards and a touchdown. The receiver is one of the nation's best and will receive plenty of buzz this year and during the offseason.
Aug 30 - 5:20 PM

Pittsburgh plans to use sophomore WR Tyler Boyd on punt returns in the fall, and is not concerned with the possibility of increasing his chance of injury.

"We don't look at it that way, that he's going to get killed," Panthers' special teams coach Chris Haering said. "We look at it just like you would on offense. We've got good guys that are out there blocking the returns. So our hope is you don't get free runners and guys that are going to get blown up." Boyd finished his true freshman season with 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns, breaking Larry Fitzgerald's record for receiving yards by a Pitt freshman. The former four-star recruit was ranked by Rivals as the No. 12 wide receiver in the 2013 class. "Tyler is a special kid," Haering said. "He is excited to do it, too — 100 percent bought in."
