Oh, you thought #WatchListSeason was over, didn't you? (Yeah, so did we.)

On Saturday, USF senior quarterback Quinton Flowers became one of 30 passers from around the country to be named to the Manning Award Watch List.

Having already been named to the Walter Camp, Davey O'Brien, Maxwell, and Johnny Unitas lists earlier in the summer, Flowers becomes the first Bull to be named to five national watch lists in program history.

The winner will be selected by a voting panel after bowl season, making it the only national award that takes postseason accomplishments into consideration. Former Clemson and current Houston Texan quarterback Deshaun Watson won the award for the previous two years. Other previous winners include Robert Griffin III, Cam Newton, and Tim Tebow, who we only mentioned for the SEO hits.

This year's list includes the likes of Heisman trophy winner Lamar Jackson, USC's Sam Darnold, FSU's Deondre Francois, and Western Kentucky QB Mike White, formerly of USF.
