TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - By SMU ATHLETICS
SMU Junior wide receiver Trey Quinn has been named one of 10 semifinalists for the Biletnikoff Award, The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc., announced Monday. The Biletnikoff Award annually recognizes the outstanding receiver in college football, regardless of position.
Quinn leads the nation with 9.6 receptions per game and is in the top ten for receiving yards (7th, 1,008) and receiving yards per game (8th, 100.8). He also leads Mustang receivers with 96 catches and is second with eight touchdowns in 10 games.
Quinn recorded back-to-back games with an FBS-high 17 catches against Houston and Cincinnati, giving him two of three of the nation's top performances this season. His three straight games of 15+ catches make him the only FBS player this century to accomplish the feat.
He was also the first Mustang with 100+ yards in three straight games since Keenan Holman in 2013, and the first since Jeremy Johnson the same year to have double-digit receptions in three straight games. Against Tulsa, Quinn posted his fourth straight 100+ yard game, tying him for the national lead.
