Mannion makes second watch list
Mannion is just 1,802 yards away from passing former USC QB Matt Barkley for No. 1 on the all-time conference list (12,237).
In recent weeks, Mannion won the Elite 11 counselors’ challenge and last week was the winner at the 2014 Manning Passing Academy Air-It-Out Challenge.
This year’s list was selected based on player performance during the previous year and expectations heading into the 2014 college football season. All nominees were required to have started at least one college game previously.
Appearing on the Watch List is not a requirement for a player to win the Davey O’Brien Award. Quarterbacks from all 125 NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) schools are eligible for the award until the field is narrowed to 16 semifinalists on Monday, Nov. 3. The foundation and the Selection Committee will announce three finalists on Monday, Nov. 24. The 2014 Davey O’Brien winner will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards on Thursday, Dec. 11.
The 38th Annual Davey O’Brien Awards Dinner will be held Monday, Feb. 16, 2015 in Fort Worth, Texas.
