Drew Allar Named To Davey O’Brien Award Watch List

Penn State football quarterback Drew Allar was named to the Davey O’Brien Award Watch List, the organization announced Monday.

The Medina, Ohio native joins the list of the nation’s 35 top quarterbacks after his performance weekend against Iowa Saturday, where he threw a career-high of four touchdown passes, along with zero interceptions, 25-37 completed passes for a total of 166 yards, and added an additional 22 rushing yards.

Each week, the Davey O’Brien Foundation selects eight quarterbacks from across all of college football to highlight. This week, it chose to double this and feature 16 athletes who had stand-out games this past weekend.

Accompanying Allar on this week’s “Davey Double” are the likes of Heisman favorites Bo Nix, Caleb Williams, Jordan Travis, and more.

Allar and nine other of this week’s nominees now join the Midseason Watch List, bringing it to a total of 56 members. Members of the award selection committee and executive committee work each week to create the Great 8 List and also vote for the National Quarterback of the Week. These results will be released at noon Tuesday. Weekly lists and nominations will continue to be made until semifinalists are announced.
