Earlier this month I compiled a list of all of the ACC candidates who have been nominated for college football's major awards. A few more have since been released, so I figured it was time for an updated version. This one includes the Lou Groza Award, the Butkus Award, the John Mackey Award, and Doak Walker Award.

Here is the updated list:

BEDNARIK AWARD: Presented to the nation's most outstanding defensive player by the Maxwell Football Club. BILETNIKOFF AWARD: Presented to the nation's most outstanding wide receiver by the Tallahassee QB Club Foundation. BUTKUS AWARD: Presented to the nation's most outstanding linebacker by the Butkus Foundation DOAK WALKER AWARD: Presented to the nation's most outstanding running back by the SMU Athletic Forum LOU GROZA AWARD: Presented to the nation's most outstanding kicker by the Palm Beach Sports Commission JOHN MACKEY AWARD: Presented to the nation's most outstanding tight end by the Nassau County Sports Commission MAXWELL AWARD: The Maxwell Award has been presented to the outstanding collegiate football player in America since 1937 and is named in honor of sportswriter Robert W.
