The Doak Walker Award, which goes to the nation's top running back, released its watch list Thursday.

There are 69 players on the list, including 2014 semifinalists Matt Breida (Georgia Southern), James Conner (Pittsburgh) and Devon Johnson (Marshall). Wisconsin's Corey Clement is also on the list. Clement will try to become the second consecutive Badgers player to win the award -- Melvin Gordon (first-round pick of the San Diego Chargers) took home the hardware last year.

Other top contenders for the award include Georgia's Nick Chubb, Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott and Oklahoma's Samaje Perine.

The winner of the award will be announced on Dec. 10.
