Davis Catches On With Biletnikoff Award
Sept. 17, 2013
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV junior wideout Devante Davis has been officially added to the 2013 Watch List for the Biletnikoff Award, which goes annually to college football's top receiver.
The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, which created and sponsors the award, announced the addition of nine players to the list on Tuesday.
Davis (Galena Park, TX/North Shore HS) leads the Rebels with 17 receptions for 301 yards and five touchdowns. His per-game average of 100.3 yards leads the Mountain West and ranks 24th nationally. Last week during UNLV's victory over Central Michigan, Davis hauled in seven catches for 140 yards and a career-high three touchdowns.
The award recipient is selected by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of more than 215 college football journalists, commentators and former receivers. The fan vote counts as one additional vote.
Online fan voting for the Biletnikoff Award is underway at the award's official site. Fans can vote once daily and the aggregate fan tally will be counted as one official vote for semifinalists (10 receivers), finalists (three) and the winner. To access the Biletnikoff Award Fan Vote, go to www.biletnikoffaward.com/fan-vote.
The 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner will be presented live on Dec. 12, 2013, on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show on ESPN.
Davis will next be in action when UNLV hosts Western Illinois on Saturday at 6 p.m. As part of the annual Family & Friends promotion, tickets are 2-for-1 and start as low as $14 when purchased in advance. Visit unlvtickets.com or call 739-FANS (3267) for purchase tickets or for more information.
