Newton is one of five finalists and the only defensive tackle up for the award, which honors the best defensive player in college football. Created in 1993, the award was established to complement the Heisman Trophy, which at the time had never been presented to a defensive player. This year's winner will be unveiled Dec. 4 at the Bronko Nagurski Awards Banquet in Charlotte, N.C. Newton has totaled 42 tackles, 6.5 TFLs, 5.5 sacks, and three blocked kicks from the defensive tackle position this season.
