Three Boilermakers land on watch lists

Purdue seniors Ken Plue and Carson Wiggs and junior Kawaan Short were named to watch lists on Friday.

Short, a defensive tackle, landed on the Outland Trophy (top interior lineman) and Bronko Nagurski Trophy (defensive player) lists. Plue, a three-year starting guard, also was on the list for the Outland Trophy. Wiggs is one of 30 players on the Lou Grozo list for best kicker.

Short was a second-team All-Big Ten pick last season after having 6 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss.

Wiggs made 15 of 19 field goals and all 27 extra points.
