Missouri senior running back Tyler Badie is one of three finalists for the Doak Walker Award.
The Doak Walker Award is presented to the top running back in college football.
Badie ranks fourth in the country in rushing yards (1,385) and yards per game (125.9). He is sixth in total touchdowns with 17 and 13th in total points with 102. Badie is the lone rusher in the country with four 200-yard games this season. He is just one of three SEC players to achieve that since 2000, joining Leonard Fournette and Derrick Henry.
Badie is the first player in Missouri football program history to reach 1,000 career rushing yards and 1,000 career receiving yards.
The other finalists are Breece Hall of Iowa State and Kenneth Walker II of Michigan State.
A second ballot with just the three finalists will decide the winner.
The recipient will be announced Thursday, Dec. 9, during The Home Depot College Football Awards.
