Senior quarterback Andre’ Woodson has been named to the preseason watch list for the Manning Award, which is given to the nation’s top college quarterback.
The award is sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl and is in honor of the achievements by Archie, Peyton, and Eli Manning.
Woodson completed 63 percent of his passes last season, good for 3,515 yards and 31 touchdowns, while leading the Southeastern Conference in passing yardage, total offense, and TD passes. He guided the Wildcats to their best season in 22 years, including eight wins and a championship of the Music City Bowl, in which he was named the game’s Most Valuable Player. He will enter the 2007 season with an active school-record streak of 162 consecutive passes without an interception.
Woodson also is on the watch list for the Maxwell Award, given to the national player of the year.
