UPI Lineman of the Year (College)

UPI Lineman of the Year
Awarded for the college football lineman of the year
Country United States
Presented by United Press International
First awarded 1950
Last awarded 1996

The United Press International college football lineman of the year award was among the first and most recognized college football awards. With the demise of UPI in 1997 the award was discontinued. Offensive and defensive linemen were eligible, including offensive ends, with one, Howard Twilley, winning in 1965. Tommy Nobis was the runner-up that season. Unlike the Lombardi and Outland Trophies, it was never affiliated with a civic organization or named after a player (like the Ted Hendricks or Doak Walker Awards). Like all UPI college awards at the time, it was based on the votes of NCAA coaches. Ross Browner of Notre Dame was the only two-time winner.
