5 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award announced

As the 2015 college football season begins to enter the final weeks, we are set to enter award season.

The latest to announce their list of finalists is the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award which is awarded to the nation’s top senior or fourth-year junior quarterback each and every year. We entered the season with 30 quarterbacks on the watch list and are now down to five.

Leading the way for the award is TCU Horned Frogs star signal-caller Trevone Boykin.

Other names on the list are, unsurprisingly, Memphis Tigers standout Paxton Lynch and Michigan State Spartans star Connor Cook.
