In surprise, Rudolph edges Mayfield for Unitas Award
(TSX / STATS) -- Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph was the surprising winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award in an announcement made Thursday.
Rudolph was the selection over Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield in balloting for the award that goes to the nation's top senior quarterback. Mayfield is the prohibitive favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.
Rudolph leads the nation with 4,553 passing yards and has 35 touchdowns against nine interceptions.
