The award is given annually to the top player in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The other finalists are Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and Towson running back Terrance West. The winner will be announced Dec. 16 in Philadelphia.
Adams, a redshirt sophomore from Pasadena, Calif, finished the regular season with 4,059 passing yards and a Big Sky Conference-record 46 touchdown passes. He led the FCS in total offensive yards per game (379.2) as well as pass efficiency rating (185.7).
Eastern Washington, 10-2 and ranked third in the FCS, plays No. 2-ranked South Dakota State (11-0) on Saturday in the first round of the playoffs.
