NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel and Arkansas running back Darren McFadden are among the five finalists for this year's Water Camp Football Foundation player of the year award.
Joining them are quarterbacks Dennis Dixon of Oregon, Matt Ryan of Boston College and Tim Tebow of Florida.
The winner will be announced Dec. 6 after a vote by the 119 Football Bowl Subdivision coaches and sports information directors. The trophy will be presented Jan. 12 at the foundation's annual awards banquet in New Haven.
Daniel, a junior, has thrown for 3,951 yards and 33 touchdowns this season, leading the top-ranked Tigers (11-1) to the Big 12 championship game.
McFadden, a junior and a finalist for the second-straight year, has rushed for a school-record 1,725 yards.
Dixon threw for 2,136 yards and 20 touchdowns in 10 games before a knee injury knocked him out for the season on Nov. 15. The senior also rushed for 583 yards and nine touchdowns for the 18th-ranked Ducks (8-3).
Ryan has thrown for 3,953 yards and 28 touchdowns, and the 12th-ranked Eagles will be playing in the ACC championship game.
