College Football Awards: Dan Bailey Accepts 2010 Lou Groza Award

The Lou Groza Award is bestowed once a year on the nation's most precious college football place kicker. The 2010 winner is Dan Bailey of Oklahoma State, who in addition to being the Pokes' all-time leading scorer leads the nation in total points on the season with 137. He trails only LaMichael James (who, we remind you, is a running back of considerable skill) in points per game, by just over half a point.

Bailey is the only Big 12 kicker to receive this honor, and the second Cowboy to take the stage tonight, following Justin Blackmon's receipt of the Biletnikoff Award. He beat out some stiff competition for the award, including Notre Dame's David Ruffer, who went the entire 2010 season without missing a single field goal try. (Bailey is 24-of-28 this year with an average of two tries per game.)
