James Washington won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver on Thursday night, the third time since 2010 the honor has gone to a player from Oklahoma State.

Washington leads the nation with 1,423 receiving yards, and his 20 career 100-yard games are tied for most in school history. He scored 12 touchdowns this season and has caught a pass in 44 straight games, the second-longest streak in the nation.

Washington is the FBS active leader in receiving touchdowns and receiving yards.

He beat out Colorado State's Michael Gallup and West Virginia's David Sills for the award.
