Sammy Baugh Trophy

The Sammy Baugh Trophy is awarded annually to the nation's top college passer. The award is named in honor of former Texas Christian University and Washington Redskins quarterback Sammy Baugh. The trophy has been given out by the Touchdown Club of Columbus since 1959. The Columbus Touchdown Club also gives the Chic Harley Award which goes to the nation's top collegiate player and the Archie Griffin Award which is award to the collegiate MVP. The Griffin Award is voted on after the college bowl games to ensure that the award goes to the MVP of the entire season.

Florida, Fresno State, Miami (FL), and Notre Dame each have two winners. Baylor's Don Trull is the only player to win the award twice.
