All three ACC teams in the Triangle have players on the 55-man watch list for the Bednarik Award as the top defensive player in college football.

Duke defensive tackle Vince Oghobaase (pictured), N.C. State defensive end Willie Young and two UNC players - tackle Marvin Austin and linebacker Quan Sturdivant - are on the board.

The quartet is most of a group of seven ACC players on the list, which also includes Georgia Tech safety Morgan Burnett, Virginia Tech defensive end Jason Worilds and Maryland linebacker Alex Wujciak.

The three finalists will be announced on Nov. 23, with the winner announced as part of the  ESPNU College Football Awards Show on Dec. 10.
