WATCH LIST: SEC dominates Outland Trophy list for lineman

By Chip Patterson | College Football/Basketball Writer

Watch Lists: Maxwell (player of the year) | Bednarik (defensive player) | More

Watch list week continued on Thursday with the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Outland Trophy awards each releasing preseason watch lists. We'll be posting at least one of these lengthy roll calls each day this week, getting our minds set for football seasons before conference media days get started later this month.

These two awards were notable in 2013 because they were both won by the same player: Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

The Outland Trophy is awarded to the nation's best interior lineman by the Football Writers Association of American (FWAA). Of the 64 players named to the annual watch list, 19 of them will suit up for SEC schools this fall. No school had more than three players on the list, but four of those six -- Alabama , Auburn , Florida State , Oregon , South Carolina and Texas A&M -- come from the SEC.

  • SEC: 19
  • Pac-12: 11
  • Big Ten: 9
  • ACC: 9
  • Big 12: 9
  • American Athletic: 2
  • Conference USA: 2
  • Independents: 2
  • Mountain West: 1
