This will be the third time the senior has been selected as a finalist for the award, which is given annually to the nation's top place-kicker. This season, Carlson has made 19 of his 25 field-goal attempts, including four from 50 yards or more. He's also a perfect 51 of 51 on PATs, and his current streak of 192 consecutive PATs made is both an Auburn and an SEC record. With 108 points and counting, he's just the ninth Auburn player to ever score 100-plus points in a season. In last month's Ole Miss game, Carlson made three field goals and five PATs to become the SEC's all-time leading scorer. He currently has 462 career points, which puts him at No. 7 all-time nationally. He also recently set another SEC record with 88 field goals made in his career. The three finalists will be honored at the 26th annual Lou Groza Awards Banquet on Dec. 4 in Palm Beach County, and then the winner will be announced live on ESPN at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show on Dec. 7.
