The Biletnikoff Award is given to the nations best college receiver in college football. This morning the preseason watchlist was released and Buffalo senior wide receiver Alex Neutz was included for the first time in his career.
Lase Season Neutz put together one of the best seasons ever by a Buffalo receiver, despite a lack of depth which made him the target of every backfield UB played against. Along with being named the team’s offensive MVP, the Grand Island native was named to the All-MAC Second Team. He ranked second in the MAC, and 20th nationally, in yards receiving per game (92.3).
In the single season record book, his 65 catches in 2012 rank sixth overall (third in the Division I era), his 11 touchdowns are the second most ever, and his 1,015 yards receiving are the second most in the Division I era and the fourth most in program history.
