Austin Hill's hot start has led to some national attention.

The Arizona Wildcats' sophomore wide receiver was added to the Biletnikoff Award watch list today by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation. Hill is one of two Wildcats up for the award, given annually to the nation's top collegiate wide receiver. Dan Buckner has been on the list since August.

In three games, Hill — a native of Corona, Calif. — has caught 17 passes for 319 yards and one touchdown. He's currently ranked second in the Pac-12 Conference with 106.3 receiving yards per game.

Hill and the Wildcats will face their biggest test of the young season on Saturday, when they take on No. 3 Oregon at Autzen Stadium. Arizona can improve to 4-0 with an upset win.
