VIDEO: Robert Griffin III Highlights, Since He's A Heisman Trophy Winner And All

If you only know three things Robert Griffin III did this year (since he has a three in his name, maybe?), make them the following three. The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner has always been a special talent, but from Week 1 through the Baylor Bears final game of the season, he found ways to steal our attention seemingly every week.

The season's first instant classic, a Friday nighter against the TCU Horned Frogs, made national stars of both Griffin and announcing team Joe Tessitore and Rod Gilmore, who finished the year having called about a half-dozen upsets or otherwise nail biters. Griffin finished with 397 yards and five touchdowns as Baylor hung 50 on a defense that ended up in the top 10.

If you just want one play, here it is: the game-winning hurl that knocked the Oklahoma Sooners out of national title contention (though RG3 finished this one with 551 total yards and four scores):

And after this 354-yard, four-touchdown performance against the Texas Longhorns to close the season, Griffin himself said after the game that the Heisman should belong to Baylor. Nobody argued.
