The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award announced its five finalists on Wednesday, chosen from a list of 29 candidates.
Collin Klein of the Kansas St. Wildcats is one of five finalists announced for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. The list was narrowed down from 29 candidates and announced on Wednesday.
Klein has thrown for 2,020 yards, 12 touchdowns and three interceptions this season. However, unlike the other four finalists, the Wildcats quarterback has been a duel threat, posting 748 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns in the ground game as well.
Barkley has the most touchdowns of the five with 33, while Smith has thrown for the most yards with 3,041.
One player missing from the list who may seem deserving is Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M. Manziel is a freshman though, and the award only recognizes fourth-year juniors and seniors.
