LSU quarterback Joe Burrow (9) throws a pass as LSU holds its first fall practice, Friday, August 2, 2019, at the Tigers' practice facility on LSU's campus in Baton Rouge, La.

LSU senior Joe Burrow was one of 30 quarterbacks named Wednesday to the 2019 Manning Award watch list, the Sugar Bowl announced.

The award is presented annually to the nation's top quarterback and is named in honor of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning.

It's the fourth time this summer that Burrow has been named to a preseason watch list as he was previously chosen as a candidate for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm, Davey O'Brien and Maxwell awards.

Louisiana-Monroe's Caleb Evans also was named to the watch list.

LSU has had 12 players named to at least one watch list this summer.
