20 Freshman FCS players named as Jerry Rice Award finalists

UAlbany QB Jeff Undercuffler has played lights out this year and has to be the leader of the Jerry Rice Awards in my opinion.

The Jerry Rice Award is awarded annually in the United States to the most outstanding freshman player in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) of college football as chosen by a nationwide panel of media and college sports information directors. Here are the finalists:
