LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL (AP) -- Boston College's Andre Williams has won the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top running back.
Williams was presented with the award Thursday during the 23rd College Football Awards Show at Disney.
A Heisman Trophy finalist as well, Williams became the first running back at the Football Bowl Subdivision level since 2008 to rush for 2,000 yards. He finished with 2,102 yards and 17 touchdowns to help the Eagles to seven wins and a bowl berth this season.
Williams was selected over fellow finalists Ka'Deem Carey of Arizona and Bishop Sankey of Washington.
Wisconsin's Montee Ball won the award in 2012.
