Illinois recognized for what it did 73 times last season: punting.

He can tackle too!

If you though Watch List Week was over, you were wrong. On Monday it was Jonathan Brown being named to the watch list for the Bednarik Award, and today it's Illinois punter Justin Duvernois being named to the watch list for the Ray Guy Award.

Duvernois is one of 25 punters to make the list, and he's one of three Big Ten punters named to the list, joining Michigan State's Mike Sadler and Purdue's Cody Webster.

Last season Duvernois was one of the best punters in the Big Ten, which makes sense seeing that he had so much practice. He averaged 41.92 yards on his 73 punts, which was good for third in the conference behind both Sadler and Webster.

Personally I'm hoping Duvernois keeps the average up there this season, but with about 25 less punts.
