Bowman Named Biletnikoff Semifinalist

Oklahoma State Cowboy wide receiver Adarius Bowman is one of 14 semifinalists for the Biletnikoff Award, given to the best college wide receiver each season. The 6-4, 220-pound junior leads OSU with 39 catches for 877 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Bowman, in his first year at OSU after transferring from North Carolina, averages 109.6 receiving yards for the Cowboys, which ranks him third among all Division I-A receivers. He also averages 22.5 yards per catch, which ranks third nationally.

On Oct. 14, he set a Oklahoma State and Big 12 Conference records with 13 catches for 300 yards and four touchdowns in the Cowboys win over Kansas in Lawrence, Kan. The 300-yard performance was the 11th-best by a receiver in NCAA history.

The winner of the Biletnikoff Award, named for former Oakland Raiders receiver Fred Biletnikoff, will be named during the Home Depot College Football Awards Show to be telecast (ESPN) on Dec. 7.
