FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas punter Dylan Breeding and kicker Zach Hocker have been added to watch lists for two national awards.
Hocker was named to the Lou Groza Award watch list for the second season in a row. Last year, Hocker broke the single-season record for points by a kicker with 118. The Russellville native was 17th in the NCAA with his average of 9.1 points per game.
The Orange Bowl Committee will present the award at a banquet in December.
Breeding was included on the Ray Guy Award watch list that honors punters.
Breeding averaged 45.3 yards per punt last season with a long of 70 yards. The Alabama native is the first punter in Arkansas history to lead the Southeastern Conference in punting average.
The winner will be announced in December.
