Biletnikoff Award names 10 semifinalists

With the end of the regular season two weeks away (three if you’re a Big 12 fan), the Biletnikoff Award announced 10 semifinalists on Monday:

Nelson Agholor (USC): 82 catches, 1,079 yards, 10 TDs
Amari Cooper (Alabama): 87 catches, 1,303 yards*, 11 TDs
Rashad Greene (Florida State): 75 catches, 1,042 yards, 5 TDs
Rashard Higgins (Colorado State): 67 catches, 1,280 yards, 13 TDs*
Tyler Lockett (K-State): 60 catches, 878 yards, 6 TDs
Vince Mayle (Washington State): 86 catches, 1,152 yards, 9 TDs
Sterling Shepard (Oklahoma): 50 catches, 957 yards, 5 TDs
Nelson Spruce (Colorado): 99 catches*, 1,091 yards, 11 TDs
Jaelen Strong (Arizona State): 71 catches, 982 yards, 9 TDs
Kevin White (West Virginia): 91 catches, 1,207 yards, 8 TDs

*Denotes FBS leader

Any snubs on here? Only one statistical leader isn’t on this list -- Notre Dame’s Will Fuller, whose 13 touchdowns are tied with Higgins for the most among FBS receivers.

If I’m taking a stab at the three finalists, I’ll say Amari Cooper (who should win the award), Jaelen Strong (if he’s over his possible concussion vs. Oregon State) and Kevin White.

The Biletnikoff Award will announce three finalists Nov. 24 and the winner of the honor on Dec. 11.
