Pitt receiver Tyler Boyd was named today to the watch list for the 2014 Biletnikoff Award, given annually to the best receiver in college football.
Boyd, a sophomore, caught 85 passes for 1,174 yards — both Pitt freshman records — and seven touchdowns in his first college season last year. He was one of only five sophomores to make the 55-member watch lists.
Pitt has two former Biletnikoff Award winners: Antonio Bryant won it in 2000 and Larry Fitzgerald took home the award in 2003.
