Keith Wenning, a senior quarterback for the Ball State football team, has been named one of 10 finalists for the 2013 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, which goes to the country's top college quarterback.

Narrowed from an original list of 30 of the nation's top quarterbacks, Wenning joins finalists Tajh Boyd (Clemson), Derek Carr (Fresno State), Taylor Kelly (Arizona State), Jordan Lynch (Northern Illinois), Sean Mannion (Oregon State), AJ McCarron (Alabama), Aaron Murray (Georgia), Keith Price (Washington) and Connor Shaw (South Carolina).

Named after the man many refer to as the greatest quarterback ever to play the game of football, the prestigious Golden Arm Award will be presented Dec. 13.  In addition to accomplishments on the field, candidates are judged on their character, citizenship, scholastic achievement and leadership qualities.

Wenning has thrown for at least 300 yards in a game a school record 14 times in his career and is the only Football Bowl Subdivision quarterback in the country to have thrown for at least 300 yards in eight games this season.  His 3,164 passing yards through the first 10 games of the season ranks third on the Cardinals' single-season list.
