The closest race ever? That meant Gerhart, who closed strong with some spectacular performances as Stanford’s running back in the last few weeks of the season, might truly have a chance to win. But then Comerford ended his dramatic pause and announced the winner “running back Mark Ingram of Alabama.” It turned out that he had defeated Gerhart, who finished second, by a mere 28 points in the balloting of 920 voters.
