LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Utah's Tom Hackett has won the Ray Guy Award, given to the nation's top punter.

Hackett was presented with the trophy Thursday night during the College Football Awards Show at Disney.

The Australian-born punter becomes the first Utah player and the first from the Pac-12 to win the award.

Hackett placed 35 of his 77 punts this season inside the 20-yard line, and six punts inside the 5. He ranked second in the nation with 3,619 total yards on punts.

He was selected over finalists JK Scott of Alabama and Austin Rehkow of Idaho.

Memphis' Tom Hornsey won the award in 2013.
