Big 12 lands two Biletnikoff finalists
By ESPN.com staff
Just like last year, a pair of receivers in the state of Oklahoma will go head-to-head for the Biletnikoff Award.
Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon won the award in 2010, ahead of Oklahoma's Ryan Broyles. He's back as one of three finalists.
The award committee put Broyles, who's out for the season with a torn ACL, on its list of finalists again, too. Great move.
Blackmon and Broyles are joined by USC's Robert Woods.
Baylor's Kendall Wright didn't make the list, surely a near miss. It's a tight race at the top, though, and somebody has to be left out. Unfortunately, it's Wright. He's third nationally with 1,281 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.
