NORMAN, Oklahoma -

University of Oklahoma senior center Ben Habern has been named to the 2012 Rimington Trophy Watch List. The trophy is presented annually to the top center in college football.

Habern, a native of Argyle, Texas, has started 30 games at center for the Sooners. An arm injury allowed him to only start six games a season ago, after starting all 14 games for the Sooners in 2010.

Habern is the sixth OU players to be named to an award watch list this week, and is one of four Big 12 players on the Rimington Watch List.
