Watch List Watching

Each week, we’ll take a look at how the Auburn players on watch lists performed on the field and who their competition might be.

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

Cameron Artis-Payne (Maxwell)
A new addition to our list, CAP was added to the Maxwell Award watch list this week. This season, CAP has 664 yards rushing and five TDs, and in a new offensive wrinkle, has eight catches for 99 yards. The finalists for the Maxwell Awards will be announced in November. Sammie Coates and Nick Marshall are remain on the list.

Sammie Coates (Biletnikoff, Maxwell)

Coates had three catches for 22 yards. He also caught a bomb on the sidelines to open up the second half, but it was negated by a questionable (read: totally bogus) offensive pass interference call. One of the many what if's in this game.

Reese Dismukes (Lombardi, Outland, Rimington)

Not much to stay about the offensive line that we haven't said every week. Miss State was able to put a lot of pressure on Marshall.

Kris Frost (Butkus)

Frost had six tackles, one assist and one QB hurry.

Nick Marshall (Davey O'Brien, Manning, Maxwell, Walter Camp)

Marshall was 17 of 35 for 209 yards, two TDs and two interceptions. He also rushed 17 times for 100 yards.

Robenson Therezie (Bednarik)

Therezie had recorded three tackles and one assist.

CJ Uzomah (Mackey)

Uzomah caught two passes for 23 yards, and rushed for one. Uzomah has made the midseason watch list for the Mackey Award. The list was narrowed down to 33 players earlier this week, and finalists will be announced in November. He has 24 catches for 364 yards and six touchdowns in his career.

Gabe Wright (Bronko Nagurski, Outland)

Wright served as a team captain but recorded no stats.

Notable Competition

Baylor QB Bryce Petty was named the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week after leading his team back from 21 points down in the fourth quarter against TCU.
