Two more Broncos were named to postseason award watch lists with redshirt senior tight end Jake Roh to the Mackey Award, given annually to the nation's top tight end, and senior center Mason Hampton was named to the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, given to college football's top center.

It's the second-straight preseason in which Roh has been named a candidate for the Mackey Award. The previous two seasons Roh made 35 catches for 408 yards and two touchdowns in 2014 while being named All-Mountain West Honorable Mention. The following year, he was selected to the All-Mountain West Second Team after catching 33 balls for 357 yards and a score.

Hampton stepped into the starting center's role for the Broncos in 2016, starting all 11 games in which he appeared. The Meridian native paved the way for the Mountain West's top offense at 472.8 yards per game, and on the line providing protection for quarterback Brett Rypien as he directed a passing offense that ranked 15th in the country.
