UCLA junior flanker Freddie Mitchell has been selected to the BCSfootball.com Midseason All-America team. The 'Bowl Championship Series' site is produced by ABC Sports.

Mitchell is the only Pac-10 player on the offensive unit. Linemen Larry Tripplett of Washington and Andre Carter of California and punter Kurtis Doerr of Oregon were named to the defensive unit.

The explosive Mitchell, who always seems to be in the middle of the action, currently leads the nation with his average of 122.7 receiving yards per game. He also ranks 14th (tied) in the NCAA and first (tied) in the Pac-10 in receptions (6.3 average) and his average of 19.4 yards per catch ranks first nationally among players in the Top 30 in receptions per game. He also ranks third in the Pac-10 in all-purpose yards (122.0) and fifth (tied) in scoring (6.0).

On the year, he leads the Bruins with 38 receptions and 736 receiving yards and is tied with DeShaun Foster for the team lead with six touchdowns. He has already accounted for more yards in six games than he did during the entire 1999 season.

At his current pace, Mitchell would finish the regular season with 1,349 yards, breaking Danny Farmer's school record of 1,274, set in 12 games. His 736 yards already rank eighth on UCLA's single-season list with five games to play.

In his last four games, Mitchell has made 28 receptions for 587 yards (146.8 average) and four touchdowns. He has accounted for at least 100 yards in each game, tying the school record set by Kevin Jordan in 1994.
