Purdue punter Cody Webster was named a finalist for the Ray Guy Award.

WEST LAFAYETTE -- A season of struggles for Purdue has brought one constant: Cody Webster's spectacular punts.

Webster, a senior, was named one of three finalists for the Ray Guy Award, given to the nation's top punter.

This season, Webster has averaged 43.5 yards per punt on 65 attempts. Of that total, 22 have been placed inside the opponent's 20-yard line and 15 have gone more than 50 yards.

Webster's two best punts of the season have traveled 73 yards, both forcing fumbles. Purdue ranks third nationally in punting net average with 41.5 yards per attempt.

The winner of the Ray Guy Award will be announced on December 12 in Orlando. The other two finalists are Tom Hornsey of Memphis and Drew Kaser of Texas A&M.
