In the closest Heisman voting in the award's first 75 years,

(RB) and Texas' Colt McCoy (QB) in the voting.

Among first place votes, Ingram received 227 while Gerhart
earned 222 and McCoy garnered 203.  In the final Heisman
point totals posted 1,304 points from the nationwide
Heisman voting, while Gerhart gained 1, 276 and McCoy
picked up 1,145 points.

Ingram capped off his Heisman resume, a week before the
award was presented when he ran for 113 yards and 3 TD's
in Alabama's win over undefeated Florida in the SEC
Championship Game.  Ingram had a season full of
success as he set a school individual season record with
1,542 yards.  Ingram also scored 18 TD's for an Alabama
team that often looked for the bruising back in the 2nd half
of key conference matches.

Besides finishing above Gerhart and McCoy, Ingram also
surged ahead of Heisman finalist Tim Tebow (FLA-QB) and
Nebraska (DT) Ndamukong Suh.
