Another day, another watch list.

Today, it's the watch list for the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation's best defensive back. The watch list includes 39 players from 10 conferences, including four players from the Pac-12. Again, like every watch list, this is in pencil, not permanent marker. Names could change and appear. The winner will be announced at the The Home Depot College Football Awards on Thursday, Dec. 11.

Pac-12 players on the watch list:
  • S Su'a Cravens, Sophomore, USC -- 2013 statistics: 52 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, 4 interceptions
  • CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Senior, Oregon -- 2013 statistics: 84 tackles, 5 TFL, 3 interceptions
  • S Jordan Richards, Senior, Stanford -- 2013 statistics: 69 tackles, 4 TFL, 3 interceptions
  • CB Marcus Peters, Junior, Washington -- 2013 statistics: 55 tackles, 3.5 TFL, 5 interceptions

A few schools landed more than one player including Michigan State, UCF, Arkansas State, Boise State and Florida State.
