As a Junior, Zabransky completed 182-of-307 passes for 2,283 yards and 17 touchdowns during the regular season..

The Maxwell Award watch list includes a field of sixty candidates as selected by the Maxwell Football Club Advisory Committee. Additions and subtractions to the lists, based on player performance, will be made through out the 2006 football season.

Twelve semi-finalists for each award will be announced in October 2005 and the field will be trimmed to three finalists in November 2005. The winners of the Maxwell Award will be announced at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show that will be broadcast on ESPN in December 2006. The formal presentation of the Maxwell Award will take place at the Maxwell Football Club Awards Banquet in March 2007.

Zabransky is one of 26 quarterbacks on the watch list and one of only two Western Athletic Conference players, the other is University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan.
