NCAA Football: Missouri State at Oklahoma

Texas Tech’s Erik Ezukanma and Oklahoma’s Marvin Mims were two of several Big 12 wide receivers named to the 2021 Biletnikoff Award Watch List on Thursday.

The watch list revealed the receivers and tight ends that are initial candidates for the award given to the best receiver in college football. It is named for former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff.

He was second in the league for receiving yards per game, third in receiving yards, fourth in receiving touchdowns, fifth in receptions per game, sixth in yards per reception and ninth in all-purpose yards per game.
