Buck Buchanan Award


Buck Buchanan Award

The Buck Buchanan Award is presented annually to the nation's outstanding Division I FCS (formerly Division I-AA) college football defensive player. When it was instituted in 1995, the Walter Payton Award, previously awarded to the top I-AA player, was restricted to offensive players. The award is named after Buck Buchanan, and along with the Payton Award is handed out the night before the annual NCAA Division I Football Championship.
