CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami Hurricanes senior offensive guard Brandon Linder is one of 75 players named to the 2013 Outland Trophy Watch List, announced Thursday by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA).

The Outland Trophy is presented to the nation’s most outstanding interior lineman. Linder is one of 11 ACC players and one of 20 offensive guards named to the list.

Linder started all 12 games at right guard for the Hurricanes in 2012, earning All-ACC honorable mention from ACSMA and the league coaches. He helped anchor an offensive line that paved the way for the ACC’s third-best passing offense (295.4) and fifth-best total offense (440.2) last season.

The Southwest Ranches, Fla., native has also been named to a first-team All-ACC preseason selection by both Athlon Sports and Phil Steele.

Two Miami Hurricanes have won the Outland Trophy. Russell Maryland became the first UM player to win the award in 1990 and Bryant McKinnie won it in 2001.

Season tickets for the 2013 football season are on sale now for as low as $98. To purchase season tickets, call the UM Athletic Ticket Office at 305-284-2263 or buy online at www.CanesTix.com.
