BATON ROUGE - LSU announced today that senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger made it onto the watch list for the 2012 Maxwell Award.

Mettenberger is one of 16 SEC players in the hunt for the award, given by the Maxwell Football Club to the college football player of the year.

In 2012 Mettenberger threw for 2,609 yards and 12 touchdowns on 207-of-352 passing. He joined Matt Flynn (2007) and Warren Rabb (1958) as the only first-year starting quarterbacks in LSU history to lead the Tigers to double-figure victories.

He threw just seven interceptions all of 2012, while his 50:1 ratio of passes to interceptions rates as the best for a single-season in school history for quarterbacks with at least 300 attempts. Mettenberger's passing yards and completions last season were both fifth in LSU single-season annals.

The winner will be announced Dec. 5 at Walt Disney World Resort.
