Texas A&M tailback Mike Goodson and fullback Jorvorskie Lane are among the 43 candidates for the Doak Walker Award, which is presented annually to the nation's top college running back. The list also includes TCU's Joseph Turner, Nebraska's Marlon Lucky and Oklahoma's DeMarco Murray, along with two upcoming Aggies opponents: Arkansas State's Reggie Arnold and New Mexico's Rodney Ferguson.
Semifinalists will be announced Nov. 10, and finalists will be named Nov. 24. The selection commitee, which will cast its final votes beginning Dec. 1, consists of former NFL All-Pro and college All-American running backs, media members and selected representatives.
