There is more awards news coming today, as Jimmy Clausen isn’t the only Irish offensive star to be named to a semifinalist list.

Golden Tate is one of 10 receivers to be named a Biletnikoff Award semifinalist. The honor will be cut down to three finalists in November, but for the time being, here are the other 9 receivers up for the award:

Freddie Barnes, Bowling Green
Dezmon Briscoe, Kansas
Vincent Brown, San Diego State
Eric Decker, Minnesota
Mardy Gilyard, Cincinnati
A.J. Green, Georgia
Jordan Shipley, Texas
Demaryius Thomas, Georgia Tech
Mike Williams, Syracuse

Tate has 52 receptions for 847 yards and 8 touchdowns through 7 games. You’ve got to think Tate will be in the final three for this award if he keeps up this scorching pace.
