USC wide receiver Marqise Lee won the 2012 Biletnikoff Award on Thursday.

After a record-breaking season, USC sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee won the 2012 Biletnikoff Award on Thursday. The award is presented to the nation's most outstanding receiver.

Lee, who finished second in the country with 1,680 receiving yards, was one of three finalists for the award. He beat out Baylor's Terrance Williams and West Virginia's Stedman Bailey. Lee led the nation with 112 receptions and also scored 14 touchdowns. He is the first sophomore to win the Biletnikoff Award since Pittsburgh's Antonio Bryant won in 2000. Lee is also the first USC Trojan to win the award, which has been presented annually since 1994.

Lee set 12 USC individual records this season and four Pac-12 records. His accomplishments included setting the Pac-12 record for receiving yards in a game with 345. He caught at least 10 passes in seven games this season and topped the 100-yard receiving mark eight times.

He was also neamed a Walter Camp first team All-American on Thursday. His only problem now is getting the trophy back to USC, as it proved to be especially heavy.
