The Biletnikoff Award preseason watch list was released on Tuesday, and Tulsa is represented by junior playmaker Keyarris Garrett.
The 6-foot-4, 207 pound receiver had a breakout year as a sophomore, leading Tulsa with 67 receptions for 845 yards and nine touchdowns.
The Tallahassee Quarterback Club (TQC) Foundation, Inc. is the creator and sponsor of the Biletnikoff Award, which recognizes the outstanding receiver in college football. The award recipient is selected by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of over 200 prominent college football journalists, commentators, and former receivers. Receivers may be added to the watch list as their season performances dictate.
According to TQC Foundation Chairman Ritchie Pickron, "Given the significant number of outstanding college receivers playing in the 2013 season, the race for the Biletnikoff Award is wide open."
The 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner will be presented live on December 12, 2013, on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show to be broadcast from 7:00 - 9:00pm on ESPN.
The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. will announce the ten Biletnikoff Award semifinalists on November 18, 2013, following the vote by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee. Likewise, the three finalists will be declared, following another vote, on November 25, 2013.
Foundation Selection Committee Co-Chairman and Founding Trustee Walter Manley, II, noted, "The 2013 Biletnikoff Award Pre-season Watch List contains one of the most talented fields in the award's history, consistent with the escalating importance of the passing game in college football."
