ATHENS - Georgia senior Aaron Murray has been named to the 2013 Davey O’Brien Award Watch List, according to an announcement from the Davey O’Brien Foundation on Wednesday.

This is the 37th year that the Davey O’Brien Award will be given to the nation’s top quarterback. The field will be narrowed to 16 semifinalists on November 4. The Foundation and the selection committee will then announce three finalists on November 25.

The 2013 Davey O’Brien winner will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards on December 12. The Annual Davey O’Brien Awards Dinner will be held February 17, 2014 in Fort Worth, Texas.

Murray, a native of Tampa, Fla., is one of the nation's elite at his position. In 2012, Murray ranked second in the nation in passing efficiency at 174.82. He became the first Southeastern Conference quarterback in history to have three consecutive 3,000-yard passing seasons last year.

In his 28 wins as a starter, he has 74 touchdowns to just 16 interceptions. Murray is the SEC's leading active player in total offensive yards (10,301), completions (696), touchdown responsibility (105), touchdown passes (95) and passing yards (10,091).

Murray was a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award last year and is already on the watch list for this year’s Maxwell Award, which is given to the collegiate player of the year.

The Bulldogs start the season with a non-conference matchup at Clemson on Aug. 31 at 8 p.m. ABC will televise the game from Memorial Stadium.
