2016 Doak Walker Award watch list headlined by Fournette, McCaffrey

||

Earlier in the day, the 2016 Davey O’Brien Award watch list was unveiled. Now, it’s the running back’s turn as the preseason Doak Walker Award watch list was unveiled.

Headlining the watch list is LSU star Leonard Fournette and Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey.

Last year, Fournette  led all FBS running backs with 162.8 yards rushing per game.

McCaffrey, meanwhile, broke Barry Sanders’ NCAA record for all-purpose yards, totaling 3,864 all-purpose yards on the season.

The award, which was given to Alabama’s Derrick Henry last season, is delivered annually to the top running back in college football. The winner of the 2016 Doak Walker Award will be named on Dec. 8.
