Junior offensive lineman Jack Anderson and senior linebacker Jordyn Brooks were placed on the Outland Award and Bronco Nagurski Trophy lists, respectively.
Anderson is one of 83 players across the country nominated for the Outland Trophy. The award goes to the top interior lineman (offense or defense.) The junior has started all 25 games of his Red Raider career, earning All-American honors his freshman year. Anderson was also placed on the All-Big 12 preseason team, as well.
The Bronco Nagurski Trophy watch list is the second award Brooks has been a candidate for this preseason. He was placed on the Butkus watch list Monday. The award goes to the defensive player of the year. Brooks has led Texas Tech the last three season with at least 80 tackles each year.
The Red Raiders open their 2019 season on Aug. 31 at home.
