DOUGHTY ON DAVEY O'BRIEN AWARD FAN VOTE:The Davey O'Brien Foundation announced today that the Davey O'Brien Fan Vote is now open. Fans are invited to cast their vote for the nation's best college quarterback as often as once daily at www.VoteOBrien.org.
Fans can vote for WKU quarterback Brandon Doughty as part of the fan voting for the award. Doughty completed 27-of-34 for 271 yards and a touchdown in his second career start and first since 2011 as he led WKU to a 35-26 win over Kentucky in the season opener.
"The Davey O'Brien is one of the few college football awards where fans play a significant role in the selection process," said Danielle Moorman, executive director of the Davey O'Brien Foundation. "We've had excellent fan participation in recent years, and we are looking forward to great turnout again given the strength at the quarterback position this year."
The 2013 season marks the seventh year fans have participated in the voting. The Fan Vote counts as five percent during each round of the voting process and is combined with the results from the Davey O'Brien National Selection Committee, which is comprised of journalists, broadcasters, commentators and former winners. Fan Vote totals are cleared after each voting round.
