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.
