Willie Snead, a sophomore wide receiver on the Ball State football team, has been named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List, which goes to the nation's top receiver.

The Biletnikoff Award is presented annually by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation.  Voting by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee will determine the 10 semifinalists Nov. 12.

Snead is the first Ball State wide receiver named to the Biletnikoff Watch List since Dante Ridgeway was selected as one of three award finalists for the honor in 2004.  The three finalists appear on the Home Depot College Football Awards Show Dec. 6.

Snead has 41 catches for 537 yards and four touchdowns this season for the Cardinals.  In his last game Saturday at Kent State, Snead set career highs with 14 catches, 216 receiving yards and two touchdown receptions.  The 14 catches tied for the second most in a single game in Ball State history, while his 216 receiving yards rank as the fifth best all-time single game performance in Cardinals history.  In his last two games, Snead has combined for 25 catches for 351 yards and three touchdowns.

Ball State, 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the Mid-American Conference, will host MAC foe Northern Illinois Saturday at 3 p.m. at Scheumann Stadium.  The Cardinals have beaten two teams from Bowl Championship Subdivision Automatic Qualifying Conferences in the same season for the first time in school history in 2012.  Ball State tallied a 41-39 win at Indiana from the Big Ten Conference Sept. 15, and followed that up with a 31-27 home victory over South Florida from the Big East Conference the next week.
