Davey O'Brien Award 2011 Winner: Robert Griffin III Wins In A Surprise

Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III is the 2011 Davey O'Brien Award winner. Griffin led the Bears to a 9-3 record putting up outstanding numbers as a quarterback. Griffin at one point deep into the season had more touchdowns than incompletions. For the season, Griffin amassed 3,998 passing yards with 36 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also added 9 rushing touchdowns. He had a key signature game in the Bears upset of the Oklahoma Sooners that saw him pass for 479 yards and four touchdowns.

The Davey O'Brien Award was established in 1981 in honor of former Texas Christian University quarterback Davey O'Brien. In one of the best seasons ever by a college player, O'Brien took home the Heisman, Maxwell and Walter Camp awards in 1938, becoming the first player ever to do so.

SB Nation's 2011 college football awards stream will have the winners of each college football award, because it's a college football awards stream.
