The award was presented Friday night at a ceremony in Tyler, the hometown of former Heisman Trophy winner Campbell.
Petty accounted for 4,409 total yards and 46 touchdowns in his first season as the starter at Baylor (11-2), which was the Big 12 champion and went to its first Bowl Championship Series game. The fourth-year junior waited his turn behind Heisman winner Robert Griffin III and record-setting quarterback Nick Florence.
