The Davey O’Brien Foundation announced Tuesday that the Davey O’Brien Fan Vote is now open. Fans are invited to cast their vote for the nation’s best college quarterback as often as once daily at www.VoteOBrien.org.

“The Davey O’Brien is one of the few college football awards where fans play a significant role in the selection process,” said Danielle Moorman, executive director of the Davey O’Brien Foundation. “We’ve had excellent fan participation in recent years, and we are looking forward to great turnout again given the strength at the quarterback position this year.”

The 2013 season marks the seventh year fans have participated in the voting. The Fan Vote counts as five percent during each round of the voting process and is combined with the results from the Davey O’Brien National Selection Committee, which is comprised of journalists, broadcasters, commentators and former winners. Fan Vote totals are cleared after each voting round.

The Fan Vote Process:

  • Round One: September 3 - November 3: Beginning Sept. 3, fans will have all 125 NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision starting quarterbacks to choose from until the voting for semifinalists closes at noon Central Time (CT) on November 3.
     
  • Round Two: November 4 - November 24: The Fan Vote will re-open Nov. 4 following the announcement of the 16 semifinalists. Fans may vote for quarterbacks on the semifinalist list to help determine which three will advance as finalists. Fan voting will close at noon CT on November 24.
     
  • Round Three: November 25 - December 8: The Fan Vote will re-open for the final round of voting on November 25 following the announcement of the three finalists. Fans may select from the three finalists to help determine who will be the Davey O’Brien Winner. Fan voting will close at noon CT on December 8.

The 2013 Davey O’Brien Winner will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards airing December 12 on ESPN and will be honored at the 37th Annual Davey O’Brien Awards Dinner on February 16-17, 2014 in Fort Worth, Texas.
