C.J. Stroud has earned some recognition.

With just three games remaining in the regular season, Stroud is among the nation's best quarterbacks as he's been named one of 20 semifinalists for this year's Davey O'Brien Award, which is given annually to the top quarterback in the country.

Stroud is among the nation's best in every major passing statistic, ranking fifth nationally in efficiency (175.9), seventh in touchdown passes (25), seventh in yards per game (334.4) and sixth in yards per attempt (9.8).

The three finalists will be revealed on Nov. 23 following a fan vote and a vote from the award's National Selection Committee.

Stroud has already been named one of 15 semifinalists for this year's Maxwell Award, given annually to the top overall player in college football and has the third-best odds to win the Heisman Trophy, behind only Alabama's Bryce Young and Michigan State's Kenneth Walker III.
