Most Productive Wide Receiver Duos in the FCS

Quick, try to name two highly productive wide receiver teammates who wouldn’t call themselves the most dangerous duo around.

Plan a little extra time for such an exercise because wide receivers love the title, often considering it a badge of honor.

Entering the final month of the regular season in FCS college football, “best wide receiver duo” is a bit of a split decision.

Central Arkansas’ Tyler Hudson and Lujuan Winningham rank No. 1 in combined receiving yards and third in receptions, while Dennis Houston and Tony Tate of Western Illinois are first in receptions and third in receiving yards. In between are Presbyterian’s Jalyn Witcher and Matthew Rivera, second in both categories plus in touchdown receptions.
