There are lots of good centers in the Pac-10: See six being named to the 37-man watch list for the Rimington Award, which is given annually to the best one.
You can see the entire list here.
The Pac-10 players are:
Colin Baxter, Arizona
Chase Beeler, Stanford
Jordan Holmes, Oregon
Alex Linnenkohl, Oregon State
Kai Maiava, UCLA
Kristofer O'Dowd, USC
Obviously, Maiava, who broke his ankle during a scrimmage on Saturday, is probably not going to win the award.
The winner will be honored at the Rimington Trophy Presentation banquet Jan. 15 at the Rococo Theater in Lincoln, Neb.
