December 13, 2009

Alabama sophomore tailback Mark Ingram delivered the first Heisman Trophy to a school that boasts one of the richest histories in college football. Ingram finished 28 points ahead of Stanford running back Toby Gerhart in the closest vote in the award's 75-year history. Ingram, right, received 227 first-place votes and 1,304 points. Gerhart got 222 first-place votes and 1,276 points, while Texas quarterback Colt McCoy, last season's runner-up, received 203 and 1,145. Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was fourth, and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, who won the Heisman two years ago, was fifth.
