Stanford's Andrew Luck Wins Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award As Nation's Top Quarterback

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, according to the Associated Press. The award is presented annually to the nation's top quarterback who best exemplifies character and scholastic and athletic achievement. Luck will accept the award at a dinner in Baltimore on Friday.

Luck ended the regular season with 3,170 yards and 35 touchdowns to lead the Cardinal to a 11-1 record and a berth in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 2 against Oklahoma State. Luck already has the Pac-12 offensive player of the year award under his belt already.

Later today, Luck will learn if he is among the finalists for the Heisman Trophy. Luck entered the season as the favorite to win the award but has competition from other hopefuls such as Baylor's Robert Griffin III, Alabama's Trent Richardson and USC's Matt Barkley, among others.
