Auburn quarterback Chris Todd's good start has been noticed by the Maxwell Award committee.

Auburn, Ala.--Several months before the start of the 2009 season, it was questionable if Chris Todd would ever play another down of college football.

On Thursday the Auburn senior was one of a dozen players added to the watch list for the 2009 Maxwell Award, which is presented annually to the top player in college football. Todd joins teammate Ben Tate on the list.

Unable to practice in the spring after having shoulder surgery, he was an unknown factor to Coach Gene Chizik and the new Auburn coaching staff when preseason drills began in August. However, he moved up the depth chart and was named the starter prior to the opener vs. Louisiana Tech and has played well in helping the Tigers to a 5-0 start.

Todd has completed 81-138 passes for 1,230 yards and 12 touchdowns with just one interception. He is rated seventh nationally in yards per completion at 15.2. He is also seventh in touchdown passes with 12 and is rated eighth in the country in passing efficiency at 160.81.

The Tigers are coming off a 26-22 road win over Tennessee and will play at 11 a.m. this Saturday at Arkansas.

The senior tied the school record for most touchdown passes in a game with five and became the first player in Auburn history to have at least four touchdowns in back-to-back games.

The winner of the Maxwell Award, which has been presented each year since 1937, will be announced on Dec. 10th.
