In the end, there was really only one choice for the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top running back.

Iowa junior running back Shonn Greene took home the hardware tonight after turning in a dominant season this fall. After a year away from the program to clean up some academic issues, Greene eclipsed 100 rushing yards in all 12 games and broke Tavian Banks' single-season team record with 1,729 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns.

Greene beat out Michigan State's Javon Ringer and Georgia's Knowshon Moreno.
