(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana senior quarterback Nate Sudfeld earned a spot on the watch list for the 79th annual Maxwell Award.

The Maxwell Award, named in honor of Robert W. "Tiny" Maxwell, has been given to America's College Player of the Year since 1937. Maxwell's contributions to the game of football were extensive, including time as a player, a sportswriter and an official.

Sudfeld ranks second in program history in completion percentage (60.6), tied for second in 300-yard passing games (four), fifth in passing touchdowns (34), eighth in passing yardage (4,306) and completions (346), ninth in attempts (571) and 10th in total offense (4,377) in just 25 career games (14 starts).

The Modesto, Calif., native passed for 1,151 yards on 101-of-167 (60.5 percent) with six TDs, three picks and a 126.6 pass efficiency rating before he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in the second quarter of game six at Iowa last season.

According to a press release, the Maxwell Football Club is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA) which encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football. The 22 awards boast over 700 years of tradition-selection excellence. Visit www.NCFAA.org to learn more.

The Home Depot College Football Awards will be presented at the College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience in downtown Atlanta and will air live on ESPN on December 10.

Semifinalists for the Maxwell Award will be announced November 2, and the three finalists will be unveiled November 23. The winner of the 2015 Maxwell Award will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show.

The formal presentation of the award will be made at the Maxwell Football Club Awards Gala hosted by Tropicana Hotel & Casino Atlantic City on March 11, 2016.
