Michael Gallup named semifinalist for Biletnikoff Award

Postado Novembro 14, 2017

This marks the second time in the past four seasons that Colorado State has had a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award. He has six 100-yard games this season, surpassing 200 yards in two of them.

Gallup has been one of the most productive pass-catchers in the country this season. His 263-yard performance against Nevada is the third-highest single-game output by any FBS player this year. What's more, Gallup has been a nightmare for opposing secondaries, as he is now averaging an impressive 15 yards per catch despite receiving a high volume of targets. In 11 games, the athletic wide receiver has recorded 87 receptions for 1,303 yards and seven touchdowns. No player from Colorado State has ever won the award. This means tight ends, slot receivers and backs, inside receivers, wide receivers, split ends and running backs are eligible for the award. Brown now has 1,015 yards receiving and is only 138 yards behind former Ole Miss receiver and 2015 Biletnikoff Award finalist Laqoun Treadwell's 1,153 yards.

The three finalists for The 2017 Biletnikoff Award will be announced November 20.

Fans are encouraged to vote for who their choice for The 2017 Biletnikoff Award.

The 2017 Biletnikoff Award victor will be presented live on December 7, 2017, on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show to be broadcast 7-9 p.m. on ESPN.

Washington is one of three Big 12 athletes named semifinalists for the award which honors college football's top receiver Monday, as he is joined by West Virginia's David Sills and Texas Tech's Keke Coutee among the group of 10.
