Wow, what a ride. After 13 weeks of touchdowns, triumphs, and torment, the College Football regular season is over. Now that Championship Week is over, the best of the best will go bowling. Now, it’s time for my 2011 regular season College Football awards.

Winner: Robert Griffin III, Baylor

Why? Robert Griffin III has been a force of nature for the Baylor Bears this season. If you look at his quarterback rating, you know why he is the best, and out of these candidates, he has had the toughest competition. RG3 has led his team to victories over #14 TCU, #5 Oklahoma, and #22 Texas. He is as athletic as any player in the NCAA, and has a cannon of an arm. Robert Griffin III, the best quarterback of 2011.

Honorable Mention- Brandon Weeden (Oklahoma State)
