UCLA wide receiver Darren Andrews and tight end Caleb Wilson were added to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List on Tuesday. The award recognizes the top receiver in college football at any position.

Andrews is tied for the national lead in receiving touchdowns with seven and his three touchdown catches against Hawai’i were the most for a UCLA player in a single game in 112 years. His 114.25 receiving yards per game lead the Bruins.

Andrews and Wilson are tied for ninth in the country in receptions per game with eight.

Wilson set the single-game UCLA record for receptions with 15 against Texas A&M. His 208 receiving yards were the most for a UCLA tight end and it was only the third time that a Bruin eclipsed the 200-yard mark. The former USC walk-on is averaging 106 receiving yards per game.

Chunk plays, which UCLA’s live stat program defines as runs of 10 or more yards and passes of 15 or more yards, played a pivotal role in Texas A&M’s big lead and UCLA’s miraculous comeback. While the teams had almost the same number of chunk plays overall (UCLA had 15 and Texas A&M had 14), the Bruins saved their best for last to engineer the comeback: Continue reading “Pregame graph: UCLA saves its best for last against Texas A&M” »
