    • Middleton finished his Houston career with 137 catches for 2,873 yards and 24 scores. One of the most explosive receivers in school history, the Houston native averaged 21.0 yards per reception for his career, second in school history (Elmo Wright, 21.9 ypc). He also produced 11 career 100-yard receiving games (fourth all-time), including a career high 232 yards on six catches and two scores against No. 15 TCU on Oct. 25, 2003.

His top game in "Motown" came Dec. 16, 2007, at San Diego when he made four grabs for 32 yards and a nine-yard TD reception.
