Tide's McCarron a finalist for O'Brien, Maxwell Awards

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron continues to collect individual accolades.

He's a finalist for the Maxwell Award and the Davey O'Brien Award, one week after he was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

The Maxwell Award is for college football player of the year.

The O'Brien is for the nation's best quarterback.

McCarron is up against Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston for both awards but Alabama quarterback says he's not giving any thought to personal awards.

"Nah. I ain't worried about that," McCarron said. "If if comes, it comes. If not, I just want us to win."

Alabama plays Auburn in the Iron Bowl Saturday afternoon at 2:30. The winner gets the SEC Western Division title and a spot in the SEC Championship Game.
