College Football Awards 2012: TCU Lands Stansly Maponga, Blaize Foltz To Watch Lists

The lastet college football preseason watch lists have been released in the Outland Trophy which is given out to the nation's best interior lineman, and the Nugarski Trophy which handed out to the nation's best defensive player.

The TCU Horned Frogs landed a player on both watch lists with guard Blaize Foltz earning a spot on the Outland Trophy watch list. Foltz is getting respect on the list since he was named to the 2011 Mountain West All-Conference first team.

Defensive end Stansly Maponga is the other TCU player who earned a nod to the Nugarski award. Maponga earned a spot on the list for his ability to crash the backfield, and in 2011 he 13.5 tackles for loss, nine sacks, 55 total tackles, forced five fumbles and broke up a pair of passes. Plus, Maponga was named to the All-Mountain West first team in 2011.
