Saturday was a big day for the Baylor Bears. For the first time in its history, Baylor produced a Heisman trophy winner, as Robert Griffin III squeaked out a win over Andrew Luck for college football's top honor. Griffin III's win wasn't quite unexpected, but it was a moment of pure joy for Baylor fans, students and alums.
So of course plenty of televisions in Waco were tuned in to the Heisman Trophy Presentation. And of course, hearing Griffin III's name announced as the Heisman winner triggered quite the celebration. Students and fans had gathered together at the Bill Daniel Student Center to watch the show, and cameras were rolling as RGIII had his Heisman moment.
Video of the screaming, yelling, chants of RGIII and pure joy is after the jump.
