A total of 82 players have been named to the 2020 Doak Walker Award watch list; this includes several talents from the ACC. The Doak Walker Award is given annually to the top running back in college football.
North Carolina — with Michael Carter and Devonte Williams — has two representatives. One would have to believe, though, that Clemson’s Travis Etienne, one of the greatest skill position players in league history, is the odds on favorite to win the award, currently.
