He will attempt to lead the Spartans to their first national championship since 1966 and he will do so with a little extra hardware in his bag. According to, Cook won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, beating out finalists Dak Prescott, Paxton Lynch, Trevone Boykin and Cody Kessler.

Cook is 34-4 as a starter in his career in East Lansing and has had a terrific season. He threw for 2,921 yards, 24 touchdowns and just five interceptions.
