LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Oklahoma quarterback Jason White won the Maxwell Award as college football's best all-around player and the Davey O-Brien quarterback trophy.

White is also a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, which will be awarded Saturday in New York. He won the trophy last year.

White had 30 touchdown passes and four interceptions in leading the Sooners to the national title game against Southern California in the Orange Bowl on January 4th.

He beat out teammate Adrian Peterson and Southern California quarterback Matt Leinart for the Maxwell, and topped Leinart and Utah quarterback Alex Smith for the Davey O-Brien Award.

White wasn't the only O-U player winning awards Thursday. Tackle Jammal Brown was named winner of the Outland Trophy as the nation's best interior lineman.
