HOT COUGAR ACTION: Wrapping Up Watch List Season

Over the course of the last two weeks, the National College Football Awards Association announced watch lists for 15 different postseason player awards. Washington State players garnered a few nominations and now that all of the watch lists have been released, we can recap who landed where.

Marquess Wilson

  • Maxwell Award (College player of the year)
  • Biletnikoff Award (Nation's most outstanding receiver)

Andrew Furney

  • Lou Groza Award (Nation's top kicker)

Travis Long

  • Rotary Lombardi Award (College lineman of the year)
  • Bronko Nagurski Trophy (Nation's most outstanding defensive player)
  • Butkus Award (Nation's best linebacker)

Jeff Tuel

  • Davey O'Brien Award (Nation's best quarterback)
We won't hear much on these awards again until October and November when many will announce semifinal lists. It's also important to note that just because a player wasn't named to the initial watch list, does not mean they can't make the semifinal list or win the award.
