An award in itself is special, but accolades mean a lot more when it comes from home.

Hurts totaled 447 yards (347 passing) and responsible for five touchdowns, including three to wide receiver ArDarius Stewart. His five scores tied a school record for most in a single game, while Hurts became the first Alabama quarterback to pass for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in a game.
