Westbrook has already been named a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff and Maxwell Awards. 

OU's speedy pass catcher has been unstoppable as of late, amassing 51 catches for 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns since conference play has started. Westbrook has 10 touchdowns of 40-plus yards so far this season, and his big play ability has been vital in the Sooners' recent seven-game winning streak. Westbrook is also averaging 19.8 yards per punt return and took one 71 yards to the house against Kansas State. 

The other three finalists for the award are USC's Adoree' Jackson, Stanford's Christian McCaffrey and Michigan's Jabrill Peppers. 

A 16-person selection committee for the Award will chose the finalists, but fans can vote for the Paul Hornung Award once every 24 hours and will count as the 17th vote. The winner will be announced Wednesday, Dec. 7.
