Below are the official watch lists from the Football Writers Association of America for the Maxwell Award and the Maxwell Award. The Maxwell Award honors "the nation's most outstanding football player" while the Bednarik Award is given to "the nation's most outstanding defensive football player". Four Big East players were named to the watch lists for each of the awards.
