    BOISE, Idaho - Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien was named to a postseason award watch list for the second-straight day, this time being tabbed one of 30 candidates for the Davey O'Brien Award Wednesday morning.

    The Davey O'Brien Award is given annually to college football's top quarterback, and the 2017 winner will be announced Dec. 7 on the Home Depot College Football Awards show.

    It marks the fourth award watch list to which Rypien has been named this preseason. Last week, he was named a candidate for the Maxwell Award and for the Allstate AFCA Good Hands Team, and Tuesday he was named to the Wuerffel Trophy Watch List.

    It is also the second-straight year in which Rypien has been named a Davey O'Brien Award candidate.

    Last season, Rypien was named to the All-Mountain West First Team for the second year in a row, leading the Mountain West and finishing 12th nationally in passing yards (3,646), while also pacing the conference in completions (244) and attempts (394) while finishing second with 24 touchdown passes. He directed a Bronco offense that led the Mountain West and ranked 21st in the country in total offense with 472.8 yards per game, while the Bronco passing offense ranked 15th in the country and also paced the Mountain West at 298.3 yards per contest.

    Boise State opens its 2017 campaign Sept. 2 at Albertsons Stadium, hosting Troy at 1:45 p.m.
