AJ McCarron took home the top award of the night at the Home Depot College Football Awards winning The Maxwell Award for collegiate player of the year. He beat out Johnny Manziel and Jameis Winston.

The rest of the awards:

The Chuck Bednarik Award for the nation's best defensive player: Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald took the award home over Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley and UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr were also finalists. Whatevs.

The Outland Trophy given to the nation's most outstanding interior lineman to Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald (what is with all the Pitt players? Did Dan Marino and Tony Dorsett stuff the ballot boxes?). Donald beat out Texas A&M offensive tackle Jack Matthews and Baylor guard Cyril Richardson for the award.
