2011 College Football Awards Show: Andrew Luck Wins 2011 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award

Stanford Cardinal quarterback continues to roll up the postseason honors as he was named the winner of the 2011 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. The award goes to the nation's most outstanding senior or fourth year quarterback, with candidates judged upon character, citizenship, scholastic achievement, leadership qualities, and athletic accomplishments. The other finalists for the award included Robert Griffin, III (Baylor), Landry Jones (Oklahoma), Kellen Moore (Boise State), and Brandon Weeden (Oklahoma State).

Luck passed for 3,170 yards and 35 touchdowns for a 167.5 passer rating in leading fourth ranked Stanford to an 11-1 record. In his 37 career starts, Stanford compiled a 31-6 record (.838), the second highest winning percentage among active FBS quarterbacks. He quarterbacked the Cardinal to back-to-back seasons of at least 11 wins for the first time in school history, and now ranks first on Stanford's all-time career list for touchdown passes (80), total offense (10,043 yards), and completion percentage (.664).
