Sixth-year redshirt senior tight end Ray Hudson will get another go at winning the John Mackey Award, given out to the best tight end in college football since 2000.

Hudson was named to the John Mackey preseason watchlist in 2017, which was supposed to be his fifth and final year of eligibility. After suffering a season-ending injury during training camp, Hudson was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.

Hudson comes into this season with career totals of 34 receptions, 429 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

The winner of the award will be announced Dec. 5, one day before the presentation of the trophy at the College Football Awards Show. Should Hudson win, he would be the fifth player from the Pac-12 to receive the award.
