RG III Alamo Bowl Performance
by: TN

Anyone who did not stay-up and watch RG III's bring Baylor back against Washington, missed an awesome display of offense, by both schools.

He passed for 295 yards--4th highest by a Heisman winner. Top 10 Passing Yards by a Heisman Trophy in a bowl game (played in the year he won the trophy.)

2004-Matt Leinart, USC, 332
1996-Danny Wuerffel, Florida, 306
2002-Carson Palmer, USC, 303
2011-Robert Griffin III, Baylor, 295
1986-Vinny Testaverde, Miami FL, 285
1992-Gino Torretta, Miami FL, 278
2000-Chris Weinke, Florida State, 274
1970-Jim Plunkett, Stanford, 265
2010-Cam Newton, Auburn, 265
2008-Sam Bradford, Oklahoma, 257

RG III joins a very select group of HT Winners that won in a bowl game that would not be considered a BCS Game.

The Winners:
1961-Ernie Davis, Syracuse, Liberty
1962-Terry Baker, Oregon State Liberty
1988-Barry Sanders, Oklahoma State. Holiday
2011-Robert Griffin III, Baylor Alamo

Seven Trophy winners lost while playing in a Non-BCS game.
