Benson wins Doak Walker Award
Apparently it's Cedric Benson day around here. Ced won the Doak Walker Award, given annually to the nation's top running back, on Thursday night. It strikes me as odd that Benson beat out Peterson for the award but isn't among the finalists for the Heisman, while Peterson is. Regardless, it's nice to see Benson get some much-deserved recognition. He finishes his career with the fifth most rushing yards in NCAA history. Happy trails, Cedric.
