Two more Iowa football players have landed on 2013 College Football Performance Awards special-teams watch lists.

Jordan Cotton and Mike Meyer recently earned spots on the lists. Cotton was named to the Kickoff Returner Trophy watch list, while Meyer was selected to the Placekicker Trophy watch list.

“Congratulations to Jordan Cotton and Mike Meyer on earning spots on the 2013 Watch List,” said group Executive Director Brad Smith in a release. “Both players are elite special-team performers for Iowa.”

Meyer was named one of 20 semifinalists for the 2012 Lou Groza Award for the second-straight season. The senior’s 81-consecutive made PATs broke the previous school mark of 60, set by former Lou Groza Award winner Nate Kaeding. Meyer ended the 2012 campaign 17-of-21 on field-goal attempts, with a season-long of 50 yards. He currently ranks fifth in Hawkeye career scoring with 235 points.

Cotton led the Big Ten, and ranked 14th nationally, last season with a 28.2-yard average on 19 kickoff returns. He was named Kick Returner of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards after his performance against Penn State, where he returned a kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown. That return is tied for the 10th longest in program history.

The full list of 2013 College Football Performance Awards recipients will be announced on Jan. 8, 2014.
