LSU kicker Cole Tracy was named one of three finalists for the Lou Groza Award, which is presented annually to the top placekicker in the country.

The other finalists were Cooper Rothe of Wyoming and Andre Szmyt of Syracuse. Per


Tracy, a senior from Camarillo, California, ranks third in FBS with 22 made field goals, part of a 22-for-25 campaign that ranks 7th in accuracy among kickers with more than a dozen attempts. Two of his three misses came on 53-yard attempts, both shorter than the 54 yarder he made as part of a 4-for-4 FBS debut, after setting the Division II record for points-per-game by a kicker last season. He made the first final-play, game-winning kick in LSU history, knocking home a 42 yarder on the road against Auburn for a 22-21 victory.
The Award winner will be revealed on ESPN during The Home Depot College Football Awards Show on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. ET.
