The other finalists are Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones, Alabama defensive back Dee Milliner, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy presented annually to the nation's top NCAA defensive football player will be awarded during the annual Bronko Nagurski Awards Banquet presented by ACN, scheduled for Monday, December 3, at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte.

This will go to Jones or Te'o.

Hoping Clowney gets it next season. Kudos to JD for being a finalist though.

Looks like Te'O is gonna grab it due to his coach being a guest speaker. It only makes sense.

In my opinion, if Clowney can't win it, I don't mind seeing the guy from Notre Dame win. He's a classy guy with a touching story

That and the fact that Te'o is a BEAST, maybe?

The "media loves ND", and the rest of America hates them and thinks every single player that plays for them is overhyped. He's made some HUGE plays at HUGE moments in numerous games this season that's kept ND undefeated.

Put down the haterade people and open your eyes.

Clowney will have his say in winning this award vs Clemson. If te'o doesn't lead his team past USC it could be a close rase.

And you think Clowney hasn't done the same thing for us, and playing injured all season as well? For example, the fumble Clowney caused against UT saved the game for us. The double teams on Clowney all season freed other players to make plays for us. I am not an ND hater, I just realistically believe they typically don't play many good teams and are usually over-rated and exposed in a bowl game.

I don't think any other defensive player in the nation has a bigger impact on an offense in key plays and game planning than Clowney.

Clowney will win next year, but Te'o has: 6 int, 1 fumble, with solo and assisted tackles has almost 100 (9.6 per game), 1.5 sacks.

Plus he has a great story and fan appeal.

Honestly? No, Clowney hasn't done what he has for ND this season. With your other comment about him opening it up for others ... yes, he's definitely done that. However, you don't get awards for what you let OTHERS do.

I wonder if the fact that the award is given by the Charlotte Touchdown Club may have any impact with Clowney being from Rock Hill.

From what I've seen, Clowney disrupts offenses and offensive gameplans more than any other player in the nation. Offenses have two choices- either gameplan totally around him, or let him disrupt your offense on every single play. The ND player is a great player and makes plays, but Clowney has an overall larger impact versus offenses and is a more disruptive force. Clowney has definitely done for us what Te'O has done and more- not statistically, but overall effecting the game. However, this award is certainly about stats and Te'O is older, plays for ND, and is undefeated so he will probably win it. Clowney is the most disruptive defensive force in the nation and completely elevates what our entire defense is capable of.

I'm not trying to say Clowney isn't a great player...but so far he has as far as stats are concerned 9.5 sacks, 4 QB hurries (I feel like he must have more though), 1 forced fumble, and 30 solo tackles with 12 assisted. Meaning he has 4 tackes per game.

He does seem to open things up for others and cause if not true qb hurries, the qb to go faster and cut off progressions, but you can't ignore numbers either.

If one of the criteria was fear factor, Clowney would win easily!
