College Football Awards 2012: Texas A&M Lands Players On Outland, Nagurski Watch Lists

The next set of 2012 college football awards watch list have been released, and the latest to come out are the Nagurski and Outland Trophy awards. The Nagurski is handed out to the nation's best defender while the Outland is given to the best interior lineman.

The Texas A&M Aggies have linebacker Sean Porter named to the Nagurski watch list along side over 75 other preseason hopefuls. Porter is on the watch list for what he accomplished last season where he 79 total tackles, 50 were solo take downs, 17 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, broke up a pair of passes and force a fumble.

Texas A&M also landed two players on the Outland Trophy watch list in offensive tackles Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews making the cut.
