Justin Pugh is the most decorated offensive lineman on the Syracuse Orange roster. I mean that in terms of awards, not accessories like earrings or anything like that.

He was an All-BIG EAST Second Team selection as a sophomore, All-BIG EAST First Team selection as a junior, member of the 2010 Fall Athletic Director's Honor Roll, a preseason first-team All-Big East selection according to Athlon and Phil Steele and now he is among 71 players on the Outland Trophy watch list given annually to the nation's top interior lineman.

That makes him the second Syracuse offensive lineman to make a watch list with Macky MacPherson on the Rimington Award list.

Pugh is one of four Big East lineman on the Outland watch list. Alabama's Barret Jones won the award last year and he returned to try and become only the second two-time winner ever.

The winner will be announced Dec. 6 though there will paring down on the list between now and then.
