LSU junior wide receiver/return specialist Odell Beckham Jr. is one of 10 national semifinalists for the Biletnikoff Award, which is presented annually to college football's most outstanding receiver.

Beckham Jr. is one of three Southeastern Conference players who made the list, joining Texas A&M's Mike Evans and Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews.

The three finalists will be announced on Monday, Nov. 25. The Biletnikoff Award winner will be announced live on ESPN's The Home Depot College Football Awards Show on Dec. 12.

The Biletnikoff Award 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.
