ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Teddy Lehman of No. 1-ranked Oklahoma and Courtney Watson of No. 20 Notre Dame head a list of 90 linebackers named to the Butkus Award watch list on Thursday.

Lehman and Watson were two of the three finalists last season for the Butkus Award, given annually to the best linebacker in the nation. Maryland's E.J. Henderson won the award last season.
