Arizona senior wide receiver Dan Buckner was named to the 2012 Biletnikoff Award Watch List Tuesday, given to the best wide receiver in college football in the country.

Buckner, a fifth-year senior who began his college career at the University of Texas, caught 42 passes for 606 yards and two touchdowns a season ago for the Wildcats, after sitting out the 2010 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Buckner is one of six Pac-12 receivers on the Biletnikoff list, and was also named to the 2012 CFPA Wide Receiver Trophy Watch List earlier this month.

The Biletnikoff Award will be presented on December 6 on ESPN during the Home Depot College Football Awards Show.
