Last week, I mentioned that Pitt had several three players on the preseason watch lists for the Outland Trophy and Nagurski Award. Those players were Brian O'Neill and Alex Officer (both Outland) and Jordan Whitehead (Nagurski).
But ACCFootballRx notes that the ACC in general placed quite a few players on those list. In fact, the conference leads all others in terms of players named.
In all, 17 linemen were named to the Outland watch list while 20 players were on the watch list for the Nagurski Award.
