Cincinnati Bearcats quarterback Desmond Ridder will open the 2021 college football season in a rare spotlight.

He has been named the watchlist for both the Davey O’Brien Award, for the nation’s top quarterback, and for the Maxwell Award, which is probably the number 2 award for the nation’s most outstanding college player behind the Heisman Trophy.

Ridder enters the season as Cincinnati’s number 2 all-time passer. He has a great shot to become the school’s all-time leader this season.

We’ll get into more detail about Ridder and the rest of the 2021 Bearcats squad in the coming weeks as we prepare our football preview.

Thanks as always for your support for Down the Drive.
