EUGENE - Oregon left tackle Penei Sewell is among the three finalists for the Outland Trophy, awarded annually to the nation’s best college interior lineman on offense or defense.

The All-America committee of the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) selected the finalists, who include Sewell, Wisconsin center Tyler Biadasz and Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown.

Sewell has been named Pac-12 offensive lineman of the week three times this season, was the Outland Trophy Offensive Player of the Month for September and leads the Ducks in knockdowns.

The recipient of the 74th Outland Trophy will be announced during The College Football Awards at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta on Dec. 12. The official presentation to the winner will be made at the Outland Trophy award dinner on Jan. 15, 2020 in Omaha, Nebraska.
