Belated awards roundup

Johnathan Franklin is one of three finalists for the Doak Walker Award. Wisconsin’s Montee Ball and Oregon’s Kenjon barner are also up for the nation’s top running back honor. The 174-member selection committee is made up mostly of journalists, along with former players and other representatives. The winner will be revealed on Dec. 6 on ESPN at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Joseph Fauria wasn’t a finalist for the Mackey Award, which quarterback Brett Hundley was disappointed about. Jeff Locke wasn’t a finalist for the Ray Guy Award either, which is even more of a snub.

Eric Kendricks won Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season after logging eight tackles, one TFL, one forced fumble, a blocked punt and a pick against USC. He doesn’t pop as quite much as Anthony Barr when you’re watching the game, but Kendricks is so consistent across the statsheet almost every week.

    Barner is great, but I think this one has to go to Franklin who has more yards, broke Green’s rushing record, is thriving under a new system and new coach, and is an all-around class act.

    Jeff Locke was huge! against Southern Cal(ha!) and is getting hosed. I’d take Franklin over any back in the country right now. And Kendricks has been everywhere. Against Wazzu he was exhausted and kept making plays…
