Auburn center Ryan Pugh is one of 10 finalists for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award.

A committee of media chose the finalists from the list of 30 candidates announced in August. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to determine the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote via the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award website through Dec. 6. Fan votes will be combined with media and coaches' votes to determine the winner.
