DALLAS, TX (WAFB) -

LSU running back Alfred Blue has been named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List. The award is presented annually to the nation's top running back.

Last season Blue rushed for 224 yards before suffering a season ending knee injury in game three against Idaho.

Blue is one of 11 SEC running backs on the watch list.

The PwC SMU Athletic Forum Board of Directors will name the semifinalists on November 14, and the Doak Walker Award National Selection Committee will cast votes to determine the finalists, who will be announced on November 25.

The committee will cast a second vote beginning on December 2 to determine the recipient.

The National Selection Committee consists of former NFL All-Pro and college All-America running backs, media members and selected special representatives.

The recipient of the 2013 Doak Walker Award will be announced live on The Home Depot College Football Awards on Thursday, December 12, on ESPN.
