Lake Buena Vista, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Boston College running back Andre Williams captured the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top running back.

Williams, a Heisman Trophy finalist, had five 200-yard rushing games and led the nation with 2,102 yards on 329 carries. He left the team's final regular- season game with an injury after gaining just 29 yards, but is expected to be OK for the AdvoCare V100 Bowl against Arizona on New Year's Eve.

Williams, the first recipient from Boston College to win the award, bested finalists Washington's Bishop Sankey and Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey.
