He finished second in C-USA in touchdown receptions and tied for 13th nationally while his receptions per game (5.3) and receiving yards per game (63.5) were both fifth-most in the league. Dangerfield made his Hilltopper debut with 10 catches for 92 yards and a pair of scores in a win over Bowling Green. He started all 13 games and finished the year with a team-high 825 yards, recording at least three receptions in 10 games and 70 yards or more in seven. Dangerfield had a pair of 100-yard games, going for 107 on seven catches at Middle Tennessee and a season-high 117 on eight catches and two touchdowns at Marshall. Dangerfield's final touchdown of that game was the game-tying catch in the back of the endzone in overtime, leading to WKU's successful two-point conversion attempt. Dangerfield tallied six touchdowns over the final four games, including two each against UTSA and Marshall.
