The PwC SMU Athletic Forum announced on Monday that Ka’Deem Carey of Arizona, Bishop Sankey of Washington, and Andre Williams of Boston College are the three finalists for the 2013 Doak Walker Award. The finalists were determined by a vote of the Doak Walker Award National Selection Committee. 

The winner of the award, which goes to the nation’s top running back, will be revealed on Dec. 12.

Carey, a junior, has amassed 1,559 yards and is averaging 5.4 yards per carry in 2013. He ranks second nationally in rushing yards per game and is fourth nationally in total rushing yards. Carey is the Arizona career leader in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns and has rushed for over 100 yards in every game he played this season. He is Arizona’s first Doak Walker finalist.

Sankey, a junior, has rushed for 1,575 yards and 17 touchdowns this season. He ranks third nationally in total rushing yards and fourth in rushing yards per game. With one game against rival Washington State remaining, Sankey is tied for the Washington career rushing touchdown record and is only 120 yards shy of the school’s career rushing mark.

Williams, a senior, has rushed for 2,073 yards this season and leads the nation in total rushing yards and rushing yards per game. He has rushed for over 200 yards five times in 2013 and is the only FBS running back with over 2,000 yards rushing this season. Williams has already established the Boston College and ACC single season rushing records and with one game remaining is 12th on the all-time NCAA single season rushing list. 

The award is named after three-time SMU All-America running back and 1948 Heisman Trophy winner Doak Walker.

    Hyde just took a swing at a girl and the three missed games cost him. If he just would have raped her and gone to Florida State he would have been fine.

    Or he can elicit such jealousy and inferiority complexes from his counterparts in Ohio that they have to hope that one of the other RB finalist get hit with trumped up charges in order for his bloated stats to look better.

    Mr. Wright 212, P.I. is this close to pinning the whole thing on Meyer. He’s almost connected the dots and he’s going to blow the lid on Meyer’s shenanigans.

    I love that you keep responding angrily. It is a joke, and I will keep making it if you Ohio State fans continue coming here talking recklessly LMAO

    If James White and Melvin Gordon didn’t split carries, Gordon wins this award by a landslide
