Blackmon is joined on the ballot by Kentucky quarterback Mike Hartline, USC quarterback Matt Barkley and Wisconsin running back John Clay.
Blackmon was a key figure for the underdog Cowboys in their 34-17 win at Texas Tech on Saturday, as the sophomore from Ardmore made 10 catches for a career-high 207 yards. His 62-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter was perhaps the turning point of the game. His 207 yards against the Red Raiders marked only the eighth time in school history that a Cowboy has gone for more than 200 receiving yards in a game.
The national leader in receiving yards per game with 159.2 and in scoring with 13.0 points per game, Blackmon ranks second nationally in receptions per game with 9.5. He has logged more than 100 receiving yards in each of Oklahoma State's six games this year, marking the first time in school history anybody has accomplished that feat.
