Outland Trophy watch list

The 2011 Outland Trophy Watch List was released, and there are plenty of worthy candidates who could win the award that goes to the best interior lineman in college football, as selected by the Football Writers Association of America.

The list includes tackles, guards and centers on both sides of the ball. Of the 65 players on the watch list, 16 defensive tackles occupy spots while the rest of the linemen were on offense.

The Outland Trophy, presented annually since 1946, is the third-oldest award in major college football. The winner of the 66th Outland Trophy, named after former All-America Penn and Kansas lineman John Outland, will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show on Dec. 8.

Last season, Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi claimed the award.
