Given annually to the nation’s top linebacker, the Butkus Award announced its group of semifinalists Monday morning.

Among the dozen players named is Alabama’s C.J. Mosley, a semifinalist and finalist for the award last year that was won by Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o.  Mosley is the only player on this year’s list who was a semifinalist in 2012.

A full one-third of the players on the semifinalists list come from the Pac-12.  The Big Ten and SEC, with two each, are the only other conferences with more than one semifinalist.
