Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph was named a finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award, so he visited the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, Ga., this week for the 2017 College Football Awards. NCAA.com talked to Rudolph one-on-one and asked him five questions about what team he plays with in Madden, what song he would play right before the team runs onto the field, his most famous social media followers, and more.

Here's what he had to say.

NCAA.com: If you could only play one more song during pregame warmups before the game started, what song would you choose?

Mason Rudolph: "I would say this year (the song) was Magnolia by Playboi Carti, that’s the one. That song right before we go out, for sure.”

NCAA.com: What is your hidden talent?

MR: “I enjoy playing basketball. I'm pretty good, I can hang with the guys on the team. They kind of look at me as the white quarterback. I get physical down low. In high school I was a big rebounder, averaged like 10 points a game so I can still score and play with those guys. I can’t think of anything else right now. I don’t know any languages or anything like that. Rebounding, you know? That’s fine.”

NCAA.com: What team do you play with in Madden?

MR: “I used to be a Madden guy so I would say my team is the Panthers because I’m from Rock Hill, so right south of Charlotte.”

NCAA.com: If you could pick any player in college football history to be your teammate on offense and one to play against on defense, who would you choose?

MR: “Well, I got to go Barry Sanders at running back, he’s an Oklahoma State guy, and defensively, I would say Brian Urlacher. I was able to watch the tail end of his career and he was just na unbelievable leader and player and an animal in the trenches so those are my two guys.”

NCAA.com: Who is your most famous follower on social media?

MR: “A couple of the girls from Fifth Harmony. I was going to say a football player but that’s not cool, everyone has that."
