Lou Groza Award 2015 Preseason Watch List

The Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award announced the 2015 Preseason Watch List.
Kickers on the Lou Groza Award Watch List were chosen based on statistics from the 2014 season and 2015 expectations. All ten FBS conferences are represented among the 30 kickers, led by the ACC with six, the Pac-12 with five, and the Big 12 with four. The Big Ten, MAC and SEC each placed three kickers, followed by a pair each from the American and Conference USA. The Mountain West and the Sun Belt each placed one kicker.

While the Watch List highlights thirty of the best returning kickers in the country, all FBS kickers are eligible for this year’s award. In fact, two of the past three winners were not on that year’s Watch List. The Groza Committee will be watching all FBS kickers during the season, and releasing a weekly “Stars of the Week” feature on Semifinalists for the Lou Groza Award will be announced November 5, 2015, while the three finalists will be unveiled November 23, 2015. The winner of the 2015 Lou Groza Award will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show held on December 10, 2015.
