It’s high noon...

Tylan Wallace needs your votes for the Biletnikoff Award:

All- American Watch-Chub Hubbard:

Check out this interview that the top running back in the nation did with AP. They talk the Barry Sanders comparisons, how to pronounce his name and more.

Hubbard has approached some of Sanders’ numbers. He rushed for a career-high 296 yards in a win over Kansas State, one of three games this season in which he has rushed for at least 200 yards.

“He is a great football player,” Kansas State coach Chris Klieman said. “He can run through arm tackles, he gets his shoulders squared and then he’ll outrun you. He is a dynamite player.”

Against Tulsa, Hubbard broke loose for a 75-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage. He blew past defenders who appeared to have an angle on him and crossed the goal line 10 seconds into the game. He finished the day with 256 yards and three touchdowns. He pounded out 171 yards on 32 carries against undefeated Baylor.

“Hubbard is amazing,” Baylor coach Matt Rhule said. “You never know how good someone is until you play them. He was hard to tackle.” {Associated Press}

Where Oklahoma State’s receiving corps ranks:

Oklahoma State wide receivers were ranked as No.27 amongst the groups in the country. Check out the reasoning and where other schools fall on the list from Pro Football Focus.

Wallace, fresh off one of the more dominant catch-and-runs of the season when he bowled over three Iowa State defenders and then stiff-armed two more en route to a long touchdown catch in the win over the Cyclones. Wallace has ripped off 903 yards on 53 receptions for eight scores and another 25 first-down catches. He’s broken 13 tackles after the catch and created open lanes for the majority of Oklahoma State’s other pass-catchers as he draws a double team or at least help in the secondary on every play. WRs Braydon Jackson, Jordan McCray and Landon Wolf each have receiving grades above average but Wallace, rightfully so, draws all the praise for their spot here.{PFF}
