DALLAS (FWAA) - LSU offensive tackles Chris Faulk and Alex Hurst along with defensive tackle Bennie Logan have been named to the 2012 Outland Trophy Watch List.

The three Tigers were among 71 players named to the award watch list, which goes to the best interior lineman in college football, as selected by the Football Writers Association of America.

The SEC led all conferences with 19 nominees.

The Outland Trophy winner is chosen from three finalists who are part of the FWAA All-America Team. The FWAA All-America Committee, after voting input from the entire membership, selects the 25-man team and eventually the three Outland finalists to be named on Nov. 19. Committee members, then by individual ballot, select the winner.

The Outland Trophy, presented annually since 1946, is the third oldest award in major college football. The winner of the 67th Outland Trophy, named after the late John Outland, an All-America lineman at Penn and Kansas at the turn of the century, will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards on Dec. 6 on ESPN.
