ESPN held a reception in Atlanta this past Tuesday night celebrating the first announcement of the College Football Playoff Ratings for the 2016 season. There were three trophies featured at the reception, including the FWAA’s Outland Trophy (center) on display. The 2016 Outland Trophy, which is awarded to the best interior lineman in college football, will be presented on ESPN at the Home Depot College Football Awards on Dec. 8. The show originates from the College Football Hall of Fame, also in Atlanta.
More than 100 people attended the reception, including members of the Atlanta sports industry and media. Guests and media were allowed to pose with the trophies, pick them up and learn their histories. The other trophies on display were the Walter Camp and Maxwell.
