Gari Scott (6'1", 197, Sr.) 21 368 6
MICHIGAN STATE Burress set a school record with 255 receiving
yards in a victory over Michigan. Scott has proved to be a
gritty third-down specialist

2. Dez White (6'1", 214, Jr.) 23 538 4
Kelly Campbell (5'11", 161, So.) 37 663 4
GEORGIA TECH Campbell and White average 110.5 and 89.7 receiving
yards, respectively, per game, and are a big reason the Yellow
Jackets lead the nation in total offense

3. Chris Daniels (6'3", 222, Sr.) 78 863 5
Randall Lane (6'0", 208, Sr.) 30 396 3
PURDUE Daniels (above) leads the nation in receptions and set
Big Ten records against Michigan State with 21 catches for 301
yards. Lane is a potential game-breaker

4. Troy Walters (5'8", 175, Sr.) 43 839 6
DeRonnie Pitts (5'11", 195, Sr.) 35 557 5
STANFORD Walters is the Cardinal's alltime leading receiver with
3,369 yards and No. 2 in the nation in '99 with 139.8 yards
a game. Pitts is 23rd nationally with 92.8 yards a game

5. Santana Moss (5'10", 175, Jr.) 23 472 5
Daniel Franks (6'6", 260, Jr.) 15 132 1
MIAMI Moss, who has 4.3 speed in the 40, burned Ohio State for
115 yards and Florida State for 180. Franks ranks among the
best receiving tight ends

6. Todd Pinkston (6'2", 168, Sr.) 29 527 5
Sherrod Gideon (6'0", 176, Sr.) 27 310 4
SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI Nebraska defensive coordinator Charlie
McBride called the pair one of the best he's seen after the
duo combined for 244 yards against the Cornhuskers

7. Nate Poole (6'3", 185, Jr.) 41 630 6
James Williams (5'11", 178, Sr.) 23 395 6
MARSHALL Poole, 10th nationally with 105.0 yards per game, has
been quarterback Chad Pennington's favorite target. Williams
averaged 29.1 yards per catch in his last two games

8. Arnold Jackson (5'8", 160, Sr.) 57 675 5
Ibn Green (6'2", 225, Sr.) 45 515 7
LOUISVILLE The speedy Jackson is the first option, but Green, a
soft-handed tight end, is as adept at blowing by defensive
backs as he is at bowling over linebackers

9. JaJuan Dawson (6'1", 197, Sr.) 69 808 5
Adrian Burnette (5'10", 186, Jr.) 44 630 3
TULANE The Green Wave duo has more combined yards than any other

134.7 yards a game; Burnette is 10th with 105.0

Delwyn Daigre (5'11", 210, So.) 40 521 5

time left that lifted the Bulldogs over Alabama. Daigre is
ranked 18th in receptions with 6.7 per game
