Texas A M LSU Football

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, considered the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy, acknowledges the crowd as he is pulled from his last game in Tiger Stadium against Texas A&M in the fourth quarter on Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019.

Just because LSU isn't playing a football game Saturday doesn't mean it won't be a busy week for the Tigers.

Several players -- and a one well-known assistant coach -- are up for some of college football's biggest awards.

Here's a schedule of when awards will be given out this week (and how you can watch some of the ceremonies).

BROYLES AWARD (Winner announced Tuesday afternoon in Little Rock, Ark.)

LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady is one of five finalists to win the 2019 Broyles Award, given to the nation's top assistant coach.

The other four finalists:

Baylor: Phil Snow, Defensive Coordinator

Georgia: Dan Lanning, Defensive Coordinator

Ohio State: Jeff Hafley, Co-Defensive Coordinator/Secondary Coach

Utah: Morgan Scalley, Defensive Coordinator/Safeties
