Pac-12 Football stars on Preseason Award Watch Lists

NCAA Football: California at Stanford Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Award Watch List season in college football — and we’re tracking all of the Pac-12 players on each of the major college football awards preseason lists.

Perhaps another Pac-12 back winning the Doak Walker? Time will tell but being placed on the award watch list in the preseason is a great start to an award-winning season.
