For the second straight season the Red Raiders gunslinger is up for the Davey O'Brien Award.

For the second-straight season Texas Tech gunslinger Seth Doege has been named a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award, which goes to the top quarterback in the nation.

Doege leads all quarterbacks in touchdowns this season with 28, 13 of which coming in the past two games, and also thrown only one interception in the past two games as well.

The Wolfforth native joins four other quarterbacks from the Big 12 Conference; the five selections lead all conferences, to receive a nod as semifinalists for the national award.

Colin Klein (Kansas State), Geno Smith (West Virginia), Nick Florence (Baylor) and Landry Jones (Oklahoma) were the other quarterbacks from the Big 12 to receive recognition.

Out of all the conferences, the Big 12 led the way with the five selections; the closest to them was the SEC with three.

In the field of 16 semifinalists, five, including Doege, are making the list for the second-straight season - Matt Barkley (USC), Tajh Boyd (Clemson), Landry Jones (Oklahoma) and Denard Robinson (Michigan).

The finalists for the Davey O’Brien Award will be announced on November 19th, and then the winner will be announced on December 6 at the The Home Depot College Football Awards on ESPN.
