NEW YORK (AP) — Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota (mar-ee-OH'-tah) has come away with the Heisman Trophy as college football's top player, beating out Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon and Alabama receiver Amari Cooper. Mariota received the second-highest percentage of possible points in Heisman history, topped only by Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith in 2006. He is the first Ducks player to win the trophy after setting a Pac-12 mark this season with 53 total touchdowns, including a school-record 38 via pass, 14 keepers and one TD reception.
