|Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon enters the season as arguably the nation's best receiver.|
Broyles has the reputation of being the most dominant short-pass receiver in college football but Blackmon tallied nearly as many short-pass yards (423) as Broyles (596) despite having roughly half as many short pass attempts (96 for Broyles, 51 for Blackmon).
That Broyles did nearly as well as the more vertically heralded Blackmon provides evidence he isn't limited to just running dink-and-dunk routes.
Blackmon and Broyles are both such superb wideouts that the contest could feasibly have gone either way depending on the structure of the point totals.
Having said that, Blackmon's strong showing in every category and his nearly three-yard lead over Broyles in the overall YPA category offers more than enough evidence to clearly state that heading into the 2011 season, he is the current heavyweight wide receiving champion of the Big 12 Conference.
