SHARE Fitz thinks kicker Budzien should be finalist for Groza award

Jeff Budzien kicked field goals of 44 and 36 yards. He has now made 17 of 18 this season. His only miss was a 53-yard potential game-winner against Nebraska.“How he’s not a finalist for the [Lou] Groza Award [given to the nation’s best kicker] makes me scratch my head,” Fitzgerald said. “I have no idea. I’m getting off that voting. I’m not doing it anymore. He has missed one field goal and it was from [53 yards]. He has had a terrific season and should have been a finalist all along.”
