STILLWATER – Tylan Wallace has been Oklahoma State’s go-to receiver this season.

His performance thus far landed him on the Biletnikoff Award watch list, which was released Tuesday.

The sophomore from Fort Worth, Texas, ranks sixth in the country with 110.5 receiving yards per contest, and he is eighth nationally with 442 receiving yards. After his 123-yard performance Saturday, Wallace became the third underclassman in school history to record three consecutive 100-yard game.

The first two?

Reigning Biletnikoff winner James Washington and former Biletnikoff winner Justin Blackmon.

The Biletnikoff Award recognizes an outstanding FBS receiver in college football. Any player who catches a pass is eligible for the award.

Semifinalists for the 2018 award will be announced Nov. 12, and three finalists will be chosen on Nov. 20. The winner will be announced live on Dec. 6 at The Home Depot College Football Awards on ESPN.

The award recipient is selected by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of college football journalists, commentators, announcers, Biletnikoff Award winners, and other former receivers. The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation has also opened the 2018 FanVote, which will count as one official vote in every step pf the process. The Biletnikoff Award FanVote is available at BiletnikoffAward.com/fan-vote.

Wallace and the Cowboys (3-1 overall, 0-1 Big 12) hit the road for the first time this season when they head to Lawrence for a battle with the Jayhawks at 11 a.m. Saturday.
