College Football Award Watch Lists 2012: Lou Groza, Ray Guy Lists Revealed

College football teams in the Rockies aren't exactly known for their special teams (is any team?), but local-area teams are well represented on the newly released watch lists for both the Lou Groza and Ray Guy awards. The former is given to the best kicker in the nation, while the latter is given out to the best punter in the nation.

Amongst the watch list nominees for the Lou Groza Award is Parker Harrington of the Air Force Falcons, who was 15-for-18 on field goals last season and 45-for-48 on extra points. The Ray Guy Award watch list includes Tyler Bennett of the Utah State Aggies, Pete Kontodiakos of the Colorado State Rams, Darragh O'Neill of the Colorado Buffaloes and Sean Sellwood of the Utah Utes. Those four punters, though, may have a tough time beating Brad Wing of the LSU Tigers.
