Not that this comes as any surprise, but the Bearcats' Zach Collaros was named to the Davey O'Brien Watch List for the nation's top quarterback.
There are 30 players on the list and Rutgers' Tom Savage joins Collaros as the only other QB from the Big East to make it.
Also, Terrelle Pryor from OSU can be found there.
Being placed on the list doesn't mean much more than any other preseason recognition. You don't have to be on the list to win the award. You only have to be on the list when the first cutdown occurs Oct. 25.
Bearcats fans don't need to be told of Collaros' ability. He seized the job most already assumed would be his in the spring when he built on his breakout 2009 campaign where he filled in for Tony Pike admirably.
Collaros was 93 of 124 for 1,434 yards with 10 touchdowns and two interceptions passing last year. He added 344 yards and four touchdowns rushing.
