LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry is one of six receivers who have been added to the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award, presented annually to the nation's top wide receiver.

Things we learned
From Stanford learning a lesson against ASU to Baylor's offensive onslaught, here are the things we learned from the fourth weekend of college football play. More ...

Landry has been a favorite target for resurgent LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger through four games this season. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound junior leads the Tigers in receptions (24) and touchdowns (6), and is second on the team in receiving yardage (364). Landry has caught a touchdown pass in six consecutive games dating back to last season. He also has played his best games against LSU's toughest competition this season, tallying over 100 yards against both Texas Christian and Auburn.

Fellow LSU junior Odell Beckham is also on the Biletnikoff watch list and leads the Tigers in receiving yards with 389. Landry and Beckham have combined for 44 catches, representing about three-fourths of Mettenberger's 59 completions.

Other late-September additions to the watch list include Baylor's Antwan Goodley, San Jose State's Chandler Jones, Kansas State's Tyler Lockett, Washington State's Gabe Marks and Oregon State's Richard Mullaney.
