And the Winners Are... Dan Bailey & Chas Henry

And the winners of the two big awards at the Home Depot College Football Awards are [drum roll]...

Bailey, a senior from Mustang, ranks second nationally in scoring after hitting 24 of 28 field goals and made 65 of 66 extra-point attempts. After accepting the award, Bailey was asked whether he fought with the teammate who caused his only career PAT miss, which occurred in the Kansas game. "No, I'll take the blame. I don’t want to be that guy," he said. "It’s just one of those things. You’ve got to forget about it."

One day after Florida head coach Urban Meyer resigned, Henry won the Ray Guy Award. "There's been a lot of highs and lows," Henry said in a phone interview. "Tonight is a high. To see (Meyer) walk away is hard. ... But I can understand why he's doing it." Henry became the third Georgia native in four years to win the prize, following Georgia Tech's Durant Brooks (2007) and Georgia's Drew Butler (2009). Henry, of Dallas, Ga., capped his stellar senior campaign with a well-earned trophy. "Hopefully, we can keep it going in Georgia," said Henry, who became the first Gator to win the Ray Guy Award.
