Andrew Luck Named Davey O'Brien And Maxwell Award Finalist

Andrew Luck of the Stanford Cardinal might be struggling through his final weeks of the season, but he's still performing at a high level regardless, and it's no surprise he's in the running to win every major college football award that a quarterback can.

Luck is currently in the running for the Maxwell Award, being named a semifinalist along with Kellen Moore of the Boise St. Broncos and Trent Richardson of the Alabama Crimson Tide.  The Maxwell Award is awarded to the most oustanding offensive football player in the country, and Luck certainly qualifies as one of the nation's best. He's should be the favorite to capture this award.

Luck also is a Davey O'Brien finalist, the award given to the best college quarterback. Luck is in contention with some solid competition from the state of Texas, as Case Keenum of the Houston Cougars and Robert Griffin III of the Baylor Bears. All of them should be in competition for the Heisman Trophy, so expect Luck not to easily capture this award either.
