Bustin, Amaro miss cut for Groza, Mackey, Biletnikoff awards
Texas Tech went oh-for-three Monday on the announcement of college football’s finalists for the major position awards. Ryan Bustin did not make the cut for the Lou Groza Award, which goes to the nation’s top kicker, and Jace Amaro did not make the cut for the Mackey and Biletnikoff awards, which recognize the nation’s top tight end and receiver, respectively.
Bustin was among 20 semifinalists for the Groza Award. Amaro was one of eight semifinalists for the Mackey and one of 10 semifinalists for the Biletnikoff.
The contenders for each trophy were sliced to three.
