Oklahoma State Cowboys running back Chuba Hubbard was named one of three finalist for the 2019 Doak Walker Award, given annually to the best running back in the FBS. Ohio State’s J.K. Dobbins and Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor are the other two finalists.
Hubbard leads the FBS in rushing yards (1,832), rushing yards per game (166.5), rushing touchdowns (20), rushing yards after contact (1,152), all-purpose yards (2,044), all-purpose yards per game (185.8) and several other categories.
Taylor became the fourth Badgers running back to win the award last year. Texas’ D’Onta Foreman was the last Big 12 back to receive the award in 2016. Texas and Wisconsin each have the most Doak Walker winners with four apiece.
The Doak Walker Award committee will cast votes starting Dec. 3 to select the winner, who will be announced Dec. 12 at the College Football Awards on Dec. 12 on ESPN.
