College Football Award Watch List Schedule


Here is the schedule of several major college football award watch lists which will be released in the next two weeks. Already, two Bruins have been named to individual award watch lists, so how many more will be named?

We have made it to the time of year when several major college football award watch lists are revealed, giving fans a sneak peak of who experts believe will be the top positional players in all of college football.

Today started off the award watch list season as the Maxwell and Bednarik Award watch lists were announced.

Good news for UCLA Football fans, QB Josh Rosen was named to the Maxwell (for best college football player) and DT Eddie Vanderdoes was named to the Bednarik (Defensive college football player of the year).

With Head Coach Jim Mora doing well in recruiting and in developing players, we can expect a few more Bruins to show up on these award watch lists. So which UCLA players will get some recognition? You will just have to wait as the lists are revealed!

Here’s the schedule for the next two weeks:

In my honest opinion, I can see the UCLA Football team having a player or coach named to 11 of the remaining award watch lists. Though these are preseason expectations, we could also have a few surprises from UCLA as the season progresses. Go Bruins!
