UVa senior safety Anthony Harris, Virginia Tech sophomore cornerback Kyle Fuller, and Hokies' senior defensive tackle Luther Maddy were all named to the Bronko Nagurski Award watch list Thursday.
The Nagurski Award is given out every season to the best defensive player in college football.
Maddy was also named to the Outland Trophy watch list, which is presented to the top interior lineman in the nation.
Harris led the nation with eight interceptions, and set a program record by picking off a pass in five consecutive games.
Fuller had six INT's for the Hokies last season, and was 4th on the team in tackles.
