Joining Brandon and Hollis on the list was Temple's Bill Bradshaw, Arkansas' Jeff Long and Baylor's Ian McCaw.
Both Brandon and Hollis pulled off notable creative feats this past athletic season, with Brandon playing an integral role in the Michigan football program's first home night game, the "Under the Lights" contest between the Wolverines and Notre Dame at Michigan Stadium last September.
Hollis, meanwhile, took center stage for the 2011 Carrier Classic, a basketball game between Michigan State and North Carolina, which was played on the USS Carl Vinson in November.
The SportsBusiness Journal/Daily will present all 15 of its awards during a live ceremony on May 23 at the New York Marquis at Times Square.
