PSU's Robinson named to Biletnikoff Award watch list

Sophomore Allen Robinson of Penn State was one of eight players added Tuesday to the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award presented to the nation's top wide receiver.

Robinson, of Southfield, Mich., has caught 24 passes for 322 yards and four touchdowns in the Nittany Lions' first three games. He is ranked 10th in both receptions and receiving yards in this week's NCAA FBS statistics.

Robinson caught five balls for 136 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 34-7 win over Navy.

The Biletnikoff Award is sponsored by the Tallahassee (Fla.) Quarterback Club Foundation. Former Penn State star Bobby Engram won the inaugural Biletnikoff Award in 1994.

The addition of Robinson and others boosted the total of wide receivers on the watch list to 56.
