On Monday morning, Marquise Brown found his name on the list of Belitnikoff Semi-Finalists. Securing 53 receptions on the year, “Hollywood” has racked up 956 yards of offense. The number currently ranks eleventh in the country. In combination with the massive amount of yards from scrimmage, Brown has also crossed the goal line eight times. Helping the Sooners secure an 8-1 overall record, the receiver continues to be an integral part of the air-raid attack.
Joining by numerous other hopefuls, the list is set to be narrowed once again before the end of the season. However, the winner will be decided on December 6, 2018 during the Home Deopt College Football Award Show on ESPN.
