Two Wideouts from Lincoln make the list to find the best one in the game.

Two more Nebraska Cornhuskers players were named to those pesky watch lists you either love or love to hate on Wednesday morning.

Senior Wide Receivers Brandon Reilly and Jordan Westerkamp were placed on the watch list for the Fred Biletnikoff Award, given to the most outstanding receiver in College Football today.

Westerkamp, a Senior from Lombard, Illinois, is already in the Top 10 in several categories for the program in catches (6th, 129), receiving yards (1,948, 4th), and touchdown grabs (9th, 13). This is the second straight season that Westerkamp has found himself on the watch list for the Biletnikoff.

Westerkamp led the Huskers last year with 65 catches for 918 yards, both marks good for second and third all-time in Nebraska history. The All-Conference player has a catch in 26 straight games.

Reilly, originally a walk-on from Lincoln Southwest High School, had 8 catches of 30+ yards last season. His 18.9 yards per catch last season was the second-best number in school history, only shy of Irving Fryar's 1983 season. Reilly had 40 total catches for 754 yards last year and four touchdowns.

The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation is responsible for the Biletnikoff Award, given for the former Florida State and Oakland Raider WR, who entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1988. The award will be presented December 8th.
