Already on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, UCLA center Scott Quessenberry added another preseason watch list nomination Thursday as the redshirt senior was included on the 81-man Outland Trophy Watch List.

The Outland Trophy goes to the nation’s best interior lineman. Former UCLA offensive tackles Jonathan Ogden and Kris Farris won the award in 1995 and 1998, respectively.

One year after redshirting due to double shoulder surgeries, Quessenberry was named All-Pac-12 first team last season, as selected by the league’s head coaches. He started all 12 games at center.

A list of the Bruins included on watch lists so far:

  • Josh Rosen (Maxwell — best college player)
  • Kenny Young (Bednarik — best defensive player)
  • Scott Quessenberry (Rimington — best center; Outland — best interior lineman)
  • Austin Roberts (Mackey — best tight end)
