Mathews catches a spot on Biletnikoff Award watch list

BYU’s Mitch Mathews caught everything thrown his way last season and now the Cougars wide receiver has caught a spot on the Biletnikoff Award watch list.

The Biletnikoff Award is handed out annually to the best pass catcher in college football regardless of whether he is a tight end, running back or receiver.

Mathews, a 6’6”, 215-pound senior had a breakout season in 2014 as he caught 73 passes for 922 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Oregon native will begin the 2015 season having caught a pass in 24 straight games and was named to the Phil Steele Preseason All-Independent team.
