Henry Anderson is the latest Cardinal to make a watch list

Stanford's Henry Anderson headlines another impressive day on the watch list front with the fifth-year defensive lineman earning mention on the Bronko Nagurski Award and John Outland Trophy watch lists.

Anderson was joined on the Nagurski list by teammates Alex Carter, Jordan Richards and A.J. Tarpley while Andrus Peat was named to the Outland list.

The Nagurski Trophy honors the most outstanding defensive player while the Outland Trophy recognizes the nation's most outstanding interior lineman.

Stanford and Washington led all schools with four players apiece on the Nagurski Watch List. Ten other schools had three players on the list: Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, TCU and USC.

For the Cardinal, all four nominees were also named to the Bednarik Award Watch List earlier in the week.

Players may be added or removed from the watch list during the course of the season. The FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club will announce five finalists for the 2014 Bronko Nagurski Trophy on Nov. 20.

The Outland Trophy winner is chosen from three finalists who are part of the FWAA All-America Team.

Stanford's season opens Aug. 30 with a 1 p.m. (PT) home game against UC Davis on Pac-12 Networks. The Cardinal plays its first three games at home with USC visiting on Sept. 6 (12:30 p.m., ABC) and Army visiting Sept. 13 (2 p.m., Pac-12 Networks).

Season tickets are on sale with five sections and price levels already sold out. Three-game mini plans are also on sale now.
