Four ACC quarterbacks named to Manning Award watch list

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Duke senior Thaddeus Lewis, Wake Forest senior Riley Skinner, NC State sophomore Russell Wilson and UNC junior T.J. Yates were among the 38 players named to the 2009 Manning Award watch list on Monday.

While the preseason watch list includes just 38 quarterbacks, every quarterback in the nation remains eligible for the honor. Additional quarterbacks may be added to the watch list after the start of the season. Ten finalists will be determined by a selected panel of national media covering college football, as well as each of the Mannings. That list will be released on Monday, Nov. 30. The winner will be announced on Thursday, Jan. 14.

The last ACC quarterback to win this award? BC's Matt Ryan, of course.
