FORT WORTH, Texas -- The 2013 Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award Marquee Match-up for week five highlights Davey O'Brien Watch List candidates Blake Bortles and Connor Shaw as the South Carolina Gamecocks head to Orlando, Fla. to take on the UCF Knights.

Throughout the season, the Davey O'Brien will highlight the best weekly quarterback match-up as the race for the oldest and most prestigious national quarterback award continues. Quarterbacks from all 125 NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision schools are eligible for the award until the field is narrowed to 16 semifinalists on Monday, Nov. 4.


Marquee Match-up: No. 12* South Carolina at UCF

Saturday, September 28 at 11 a.m. (CT) on ABC

Blake Bortles and UCF look to come out firing when they take on Connor Shaw and South Carolina at home in front of a sold-out crowd on Saturday afternoon. The game, which will be a full national telecast on ABC, marks the Knights' first appearance on national network television. A victory over 12th-ranked South Carolina would be monumental for the squad, who are 3-0 for the first time since 1988, and Bortles, who ranks fifth nationally in passing efficiency (199.5 rating).

 

Shaw and the Gamecocks will try to move to 4-0 overall against the Knights in their first visit to Bright House Networks Stadium. Shaw, the school's all-time leader in completion percentage (66.5 percent), became the first player in Gamecock history to pass for 4,000 yards and rush for 1,000 with his performance in week two against Georgia.

DALLAS (FWAA) – Nevada end Brock Hekking has been named the FWAA/Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week for games of the weekend of Sept. 21.

Hekking registered eight tackles, including 4.5 for losses in Nevada's 31-9 victory over Hawaii. He also forced two fumbles, broke up two passes and made an interception. Of Hawaii's 14 possessions in the game, Hekking ended five of them with a defensive play.

The 6-4, 255-pound junior from Vacaville, Calif., has been added to the 2013 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List. Five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy will be announced by the Football Writers Association of America on Nov. 21. The winner will be revealed on Dec. 9 during a banquet that the Charlotte Touchdown Club sponsors at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte, N.C. Florida head coach Will Muschamp will be the keynote speaker at the banquet.

Each Tuesday during the 2013 season the FWAA All-America Committee will select a national defensive player of the week from nominations made by the 10 Division I Bowl Subdivision conferences and major independents.

The FWAA has sponsored a National Defensive Player of the Year award since 1993 and has named a National Defensive Player of the Week since the 2001 season. Last year, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o won the coveted Bronko Nagurski Trophy at season's end. In 2007, the FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown club added the Bronko Nagurski Legends Award, which is sponsored by Florida East Coast Railway. A top defensive player from a past FWAA All-America team is the annual recipient of that award. Former Georgia Tech great Randy Rhino is the winner of the 2013 award.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy is a member of the National College Football Awards Assocation. The NCFAA encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football. The 21 awards boast 678 years of tradition-selection excellence. Visit ncfaa.org to learn more about our story.

The trophy is given in memory of the legendary All-American lineman at Minnesota (1927-29). Nagurski dominated college football at Minnesota as a bruising fullback and defensive tackle and could have been an All-America at any position. He then became a star for professional football's Chicago Bears in the 1930s.

75 players get consideration for nation's top interior lineman

DALLAS (FWAA) - Florida State, USC, Stanford and Tennessee combined to put 13 players on the 2013 Outland Trophy Watch List, announced today by the Football Writers Association of America.

 One lone, but important member of the FWAA's 2012 All-America Team - Texas A&M senior offensive tackle Jake Matthews - also appears among 75 players on the watch list for the Outland Trophy, which is awarded to the best interior lineman in college football.

A year ago, Matthews was on the same Aggie offensive line that included 2012 Outland Trophy winner Luke Joeckel, the No. 2 pick overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, now prepping to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Joeckel, also an offensive tackle, was Texas A&M's first Outland Trophy finalist.

Florida State and Stanford have never had an Outland winner in the 67-year history of the award. USC has had one winner (Ron Yary, 1967), and Tennessee has had two interior linemen claim the prestigious bronzed trophy (Steve DeLong, 1964 and John Henderson, 2000). The Aggies could have two straight winners after being shut out in the first 66 years of the award, which is the third oldest in major-college football.

The Outland Trophy winner is chosen from three finalists who are part of the FWAA All-America Team. The FWAA All-America Committee, after voting input from the entire membership, selects the 25-man team and eventually the three Outland finalists. Committee members, then by individual ballot, select the winner. Only interior linemen on offense or defense are eligible for the award; ends are not eligible.

DALLAS (FWAA) - South Carolina junior end Jadeveon Clowney, the lone returning finalist from last season, heads the 2013 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List of 81 standout defensive players, announced today by the Football Writers Association of America.

 One of the players on the watch list most likely will be awarded the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, presented annually to the national defensive player of the year by the FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club. Every NCAA Division I Bowl Subdivision conference and several independents are represented on the list that is evenly divided among linemen, linebackers and defensive backs.

The FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club will announce five finalists for the 2013 Bronko Nagurski Trophy on Nov. 21.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy winner will be chosen from those five finalists who are part of the 2013 FWAA All-America Team. The FWAA All-America Committee, after voting input from the association's entire membership, selects the 25-man All-America Team and eventually the Nagurski finalists. Committee members, then by individual ballot, select the winner, the best defensive player in America.
