Nebraska junior tight end Kyler Reed finds himself on the Mackey Award Watch List, a honor awarded to the nation's best tight end.

A day after the Maxwell and Benarik award watch lists were announced, the Mackey Award watch list came out on today – an award honoring the nation's best tight end.

It's no surprise that Nebraska junior Kyler Reed was on the list. Reed caught 22 passes for 395 yards and eight touchdowns in 2010, emerging as one of the Huskers biggest down field threats. With Tim Beck's new offense, it's expected the talented athlete has the potential for bigger numbers in 2011.

Reed is one of seven Big Ten players on the 34-member watch list. The Mackey Award will trim the list to eight semifinalists on Nov. 14 while the three finalists will announced on Nov. 21. The winner will be announced during the Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards Show on Dec. 8.

Reed biggest game in 2010 came against Colorado. Not only did he have a career high four catches, but had two touchdowns in the regular season finale.
