Prescott named O’Brien award semi-finalist

Just like in years past, the SEC has been the main talk within the college football landscape. Leonard Fournette, Nick Chubb, Will Grier, Chad Kelly and so many others have, or haven’t, performed and are garnering national spotlight.

But the SEC’s best quarterback, and possibility all-around player, once again received national honors.

NBC Sports reports that Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott was named a semi-finalist for the Davey O’Brien Award for the nations best quarterback. The 6-foot-2 senior quarterback is quietly having one of the best seasons in the country.

While racking up over 2,400 yards of total offense while accounting for 21 total touchdowns, Prescott has his Bulldogs in a position to make a move in the SEC West race.

Prescott is more than worthy of the national recognition, but big home games against Alabama and Ole Miss later this season will answer the question if he is the nations best.

Other worthy names on the O’Brien watch list include TCU’s Trevone Boykin, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson, and Michigan State’s Connor Cook.
