PULLMAN – Washington State center Fred Mauigoa has been named to Rimington Trophy watch list, the Rimington Trophy Committee announced Friday.

This is the second straight year Mauigoa has earned a spot on the 80-man preseason list. The Rimington Trophy honors the best center in Division I football.
