TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

Washington State sophomore wide receiver Gabe Marks was one of six receivers added to The Biletnikoff Award Watch List, the Tallahassee Quarterback Club announced Tuesday.

Marks enters Saturday's matchup against No. 5 Stanford in Seattle second in the Pac-12 Conference with 31 receptions,  fourth with 348 receiving yards and tied for the team lead with three touchdown catches. The Los Angeles native has led the Cougars in catches in three of the four contests and is coming off of the best game of his young career, recording career highs of 11 receptions for 146 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Idaho last Saturday. As a freshman last season, Marks was second on the team in receiving yards (560) and third in catches (49) to go along with two touchdowns.

The Biletnikoff Award recognizes the outstanding receiver in college football. The award recipient is selected by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of over 215 prominent college football journalists, commentators, and former receivers. The fan vote counts as one additional vote. Receivers may be added to the watch list as their season performances dictate.

10 semifinalists will be announced Nov. 18 and three finalists will be announced Nov. 25 before the 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner will be presented live Dec. 12 on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show.

Fans may vote daily on FanVote.
