Dallas - Washington senior defensive tackle Manase Mopoi has been named to the 36-player watch list for the 2005 Outland Trophy. The list of nominees was announced by The Football Writers Association of America.

The Outland Trophy has been awarded to the best interior offensive or defensive lineman in college football since 1946. The winner is selected by the FWAA's All-America Committee, which selects the association's 25-man team and picks three Outland Trophy finalists.

Hopoi was a second-team All-Pac-10 selection for the Huskies last season. He had 54 total tackles and led the conference with 22 tackles for loss, one shy of the UW single-season record. His tackles for loss total ranked second among Division I defenders. He also had nine sacks. Hopoi has started all 36 games in his Husky career.

The 2005 Outland Trophy announcement will be on Dec. 8 in Orlando, Fla., on the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show. The Outland Trophy presentation banquet, sponsored by the Greater Omaha Sports Committee and First Data Corporation, is set for Jan. 12, 2006, in Omaha, Neb.

Oklahoma offensive tackle Jammal Brown won the 2004 Outland Trophy. Former Outland winner Ron Yary from USC (1967), will make the announcement of the 2005 winner in Orlando.

Additional Outland Trophy candidates may be added during the course of the season. Tackles, guards and centers are eligible for consideration.
