Washington QB Jake Browning was named one of 16 semifinalists Tuesday for the 2017 Davey O’Brien Award, given annually to the nation’s top quarterback. It’s the nation’s oldest and most prestigious award for quarterbacks.
Browning is one of four Pac-12 QBs to make the cut, joining Arizona’s Khalil Tate, USC’s Sam Darnold and WSU’s Luke Falk.
So far this season, Browning has thrown 16 touchdowns and completed 67.8 percent (158 of 233) of his passes. He’s thrown just five interceptions and is ranked second in the Pac-12 with a 154.9 pass efficiency mark.
Three finalists for the award will be named Nov. 20 and the winner will be announced Dec. 7.
The No. 9-ranked Huskies play Stanford on Friday at 7:30 p.m. PT on FS1.
