Iowa football player Mike Meyer was named to the College Football Performance Awards special team's watch list for the 2012 placekicker and specialist trophies.

This is Meyer's second-consecutive season to appear on the watch list.

Meyer handled all field goals, extra-point attempts, and kickoffs during the 2011 season. He is 28-of-37 overall in field goals, including a personal-best 50-yard shot made against Iowa State in 2011. The junior-to-be has scored 159 points in his first two seasons on the field.

Meyer, a 6-2 Dubuque native, made 70 percent of his field-goal attempts last season, 14-of-20.

He was named the national Placekicker of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards following his 50-yard bomb against the Cyclones. The kicker was also a semifinal candidate for the 2011 Lou Groza Award for placekickers.

Next season's Groza Award winner will be announced in early January 2013.
