LSU’s Joe Burrow has been named a finalist for another award as the senior was one of 12 finalists for the Manning Award, the Allstate Sugar Bowl announced Thursday.

The list of finalists includes the quarterback of the Georgia Bulldogs, Jake Fromm, who Burrow and the Tigers with face this weekend in the SEC Championship Game.

The Manning Award, created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl in honor of the college football accomplishments of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning, is an honor bestowed on the nation’s top quarterback including bowl performances. 

Burrow along with Fromm, Ohio State’s Justin Fields, Oregon's Justin Herbert, Utah's Tyler Huntley, Oklahoma's Jalen Hurts, Clemson's Trevor Lawrence, Minnesota's Tanner Morgan, Navy's Malcolm Perry, Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa, Florida's Kyle Trask and Memphis' Brady White.

“It's been another outstanding year for quarterbacks in college football,” said Archie Manning in a news release. “We have quarterbacks who can really throw the ball, guys who get it done with their legs and guys who do a little bit of everything. But one thing they all have in common is they led their teams to a lot of wins. I'm looking forward to watching all of them straight through the bowl season and I'll be excited to see who our panel selects as the 2019 Manning Award winner in mid-January.”
