NEW YORK (AP) -Texas center Dallas Griffin won the Draddy Award as the top scholar-athlete in college football.

Griffin has already graduated with a double major in business and finance and is enrolled in UT's MBA program.
Fifteen other players were nominated from all levels of college football for the so-called academic Heisman.
The finalists from the Bowl Subdivision were Washington State quarterback Alex Brink, Notre Dame tight end John Carlson, Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon, Iowa linebacker Mike Klinkenborg, Illinois linebacker J Leman, Rutgers linebacker Brandon Renkart, Tulsa quarterback Paul Smith and Kentucky tight end Jacob Tamme.
The Championship Subdivision finalists were Texas State defensive end Nick Clark and Dayton safety Brandon Cramer.

Representing Division III were Mount Union center Eric Safran and Illinois College defensive back Jake Weller.
