Cam Newton won the Heisman Trophy - as if there was any doubt.
Auburn's hulking quarterback brushed off an NCAA investigation of his recruitment as he did so many tacklers this season and captured college football's most prestigious individual award in a landslide.
The Auburn junior called it a "dream come true for me... I'm living testimony that anything is possible." Newton is the third player from Auburn to win the Heisman, joining Bo Jackson in 1985 and Pat Sullivan in 1971.
He received 729 first-place votes and out pointed runner-up Andrew Luck of Stanford by 1,184 points. Luck received 78 first-place votes. Oregon running back LaMichael James was third, followed by Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore, the other finalist. Newton tossed 28 TDs while passing for 2,589 yards this season.
