Plenty of hype has surrounded Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton this offseason.

After breaking 12 single-season records and becoming the first Bobcat quarterback to throw for over 3,000 yards in 2011, Tettleton was named to the 2012 O'Brien Award Watch List and the 2012 Manning Award Watch List.

Both awards are given to the nation's top college quarterback, with the Manning Award also factoring a candidate's bowl performance into balloting.

Picked as the preseason favorites to win the MAC East division, Tettleton and the 'Cats certainly have their sights set on reaching a fourth consecutive bowl game.

The Bobcat Sports Showcase's Mark Pierce sat down with the junior captain.
