Oklahoma State Vs Stanford, 2012 Fiesta Bowl: Weeden Looking Forward To Facing Luck

As expected, Stanford Cardinal quarterback Andrew Luck was one of five finalists invited to New York City for this weekend's Heisman Trophy presentation. Oklahoma State Cowboys quarterback and one-time Heisman hopeful Brandon Weeden was not invited to New York, but looks forward to going head-to-head with Luck on January 2, Chris Day of the Stillwater NewsPress reports.

"The dude’s good. He really is," Weeden said of Luck. "He is a good decision-maker, great feet, great arm, extremely accurate. He has got all the tools to be a really good player for a really long time. I can see why teams have him going the first pick."

In addition to the Heisman Trophy announcement, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Luck was named the 2011 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and is a finalist for the Walter Camp Foundation Player of the Year Award, the Maxwell Award and Davey O'Brien Award.

The Maxwell Award is given to the College Player of the Year, with quarterbacks dominating the recent recipients lists. Auburn's Cam Newton, Texas' Colt McCoy, Florida's Tim Tebow (twice) and Notre Dame's Brady Quinn have won the past five Maxwell Awards. The Davey O'Brien Award is given to the top NCAA quarterback. Two of the last three winners of the Davey O'Brien Award -- Newton and Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford -- have been chosen with the first overall pick of the NFL Draft.
