BC WR Alex Amidon added to watch list

Boston College receiver Alex Amidon was one of eight players added to the Biletnikoff Award watch list Tuesday thanks to his terrific performance through the first three weeks of the season.

Amidon has established career highs for receptions (25) and yards receiving (366) through three games in 2012. He leads all ACC receivers and ranks fourth among all players in the country in receiving yards per game (122 ypg).

Most recently, Amidon registered game highs for receptions (nine) and receiving yards (118) in the team’s 22-13 loss at Northwestern last week. He recorded single-game career highs for receptions (10) and yards (149) in BC’s 41-32 season-opening loss to Miami.
