NEW YORK (AP) Derrick Henry bulldozed defenses while carrying Alabama's offense this season, and then walked away with a Heisman Trophy.
The Crimson Tide's super-sized tailback won college football's most famous player of the year award Saturday night, becoming just the third running back to take the Heisman in the last 16 years.

The 6-foot-3, 242-pound Henry is the second Alabama player to win the Heisman, joining 2009 winner Mark Ingram. Since Ingram won the award, it had gone to five straight quarterbacks.
Stanford's do-it-all running back Christian McCaffrey was the runner-up, making it four second-place finishes for Cardinal players in seven seasons.
Deshaun Watson, quarterback of No. 1 Clemson, finished third.
It was the closest Heisman voting since Ingram won by the slimmest margin ever, but still a comfortable victory for Henry. He received 1,832 points, 293 more than McCaffrey (1,539). Watson received the third-most points for a third-place finisher with 1,165.
NEW YORK (AP) - Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry of Alabama and finalists Deshaun Watson of Clemson and Christian McCaffrey of Stanford highlighted The Associated Press All-America team.
The team features Henry and Leonard Fournette of LSU as first-team running backs. Watson is the quarterback on the first team. McCaffrey, who set an NCAA record for all-purpose yards this season, made the first team as an all-purpose player.
No. 2 Alabama and No. 18 Baylor have the most players on the first team with three apiece. Joining Henry from Alabama are linebacker Reggie Ragland and defensive lineman A'Shawn Robinson. Baylor is represented by receiver Corey Coleman, offensive tackle Spencer Drango and defensive tackle Andrew Billings.
Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield is the second team quarterback and Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds made third team.
ATLANTA (AP) - Police say star Ole Miss football player Robert Nkemdiche was hospitalized after falling from a wall at an Atlanta hotel.
Department spokeswoman Kim Jones says it appears that 21-year-old Nkemdiche broke a hotel room window, walked about 15 feet, climbed over a wall and fell roughly 15 feet late Saturday night.
Jones says Nkemdiche was alert and conscious when emergency responders arrived and he was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
Jones says authorities found what appeared to be a small amount of marijuana in Nkemdiche's room and he was hospitalized in stable condition.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze sent out a release through the school on Sunday saying ''We are still learning about the matter, but obviously Robert's wellbeing is our greatest concern.''
MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Golden State Warriors walked slowly off the Bradley Center floor, exchanging handshakes with the victorious Milwaukee Bucks on the way back to their locker room.
The Warriors' NBA-record start ended after 24 wins when they lost to the Bucks 108-95 on Saturday night.
Golden State fell to 24-1. Its 28-game winning streak, counting the final four games of last season, came to a halt. The NBA's longest winning streak was 33 by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1971-72 - and it was also snapped by Milwaukee.
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Conor McGregor backed up every word he ever said to Jose Aldo with one spectacular punch.
McGregor stopped Aldo with a left hand to the jaw just 13 seconds into the first round Saturday night, claiming the undisputed featherweight title at UFC 194.
McGregor (19-2) finished the fight with an electrifying exchange shortly after the opening bell, slipping Aldo's lead right and cracking the champ with his formidable punching power.
Aldo (25-2) actually finished his punch and hit McGregor with a left, but the champ fell senseless to the ground. McGregor pounced, only to be pulled off in his fifth consecutive knockout victory.
Luke Rockhold also claimed the UFC middleweight title with a bloody fourth-round stoppage of previously unbeaten champion Chris Weidman in front of a frenzied crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Lanny and Tucker Wadkins won the PNC Father/Son Challenge with an eagle on the first hole of a four-team playoff.
Tucker made the 40-foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th at Ritz-Carlton Golf Club. The 23-year-old former University of Arizona player works in investor relations.
The Wadkins closed with a 9-under 63 to match Davis and Dru Love, Larry and Drew Nelson, and Fred and Taylor Funk at 20 under in the scramble tournament. The Nelsons and Funks shot 62, and the Loves had a 63, with all four teams birdieing the 18th in regulation.
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins' slow start cost Mike Johnston his job.
The Penguins fired Johnston and assistant Gary Agnew on Saturday morning with the high-profile team languishing in the middle of the pack in the crowded Metropolitan Division.
Mike Sullivan, who was head coach of the Boston Bruins from 2003-06 and was serving as the coach of Pittsburgh's affiliate in the American Hockey League, replaces Johnston.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - U.S. national team forward Jordan Morris and the Stanford Cardinal couldn't be stopped.
Morris scored twice and the Cardinal buried four of their five shots to win their first NCAA title in men's soccer with a 4-0 win over Clemson in the College Cup final.
Stanford's four goals were the most in a College Cup final since St. John's had four goals in the title game in 1996.
With the win, Stanford's Jeremy Gunn became the fourth coach to win championships at both Division I and Division II schools - he won in 2005 at Division II Fort Lewis College.
