The College Football Performance Awards and Manning Award recognize BYU quarterback Tanner Mangum following his performance Saturday night against ECU.

The CFPA listed Mangum on its midseason watch list for the CFPA National Performer of the Year trophy. The trophy will be presented on January 13, 2016. All FBS student-athletes are eligible for the award. There are 32 FBS players in the running for the award including 23 quarterbacks.

The Manning Award – which is sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl – selected Mangum as one of its “Stars of the Week.” Following the 2015 season, the Manning Award will recognize its 12th national winner. On the Allstate Sugar Bowl facebook page, fans have the opportunity to vote for Mangum as “Quarterback of the Week” which will be announced on Thursday.

Mangum led the Cougars to a victory over ECU late in the fourth quarter. The win over the Pirates was the fourth game that the Cougars have put away the game in the fourth quarter. Mangum completed 24 passes on 33 attempts for 332 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
