Griffin wins Baylor's first Heisman Trophy

Baylor University quarterback Robert Griffin III has won the 2011 Heisman Trophy.

Griffin bested a field of finalists that included Wisconsin running back Montee Ball, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, Louisiana State cornerback Tyrann Mathieu and Alabama running back Trent Richardson. The award was announced Saturday night in New York.

The award, which honors the most outstanding player in college football, is voted on by hundreds of media members and past winners.

Griffin has passed for 3,998 yards this year and accounted for 45 touchdowns (36 passing, nine rushing). Griffin is the first Baylor player to receive the Heisman Trophy.
