The Sammy Baugh Trophy is awarded annually to the nation's top college passer. The award is named in honor of former Texas Christian University and Washington Redskins quarterback "Slingin' Sammy" Baugh. The trophy has been given out by the Touchdown Club of Columbus since 1959. The Columbus Touchdown Club also gives the Chic Harley Award which goes to the nation's top collegiate player and the Archie Griffin Award which is award to the collegiate MVP. The Griffin Award is voted on after the college bowl games to ensure that the award goes to the MVP of the season.

Several schools have had multiple Sammy Baugh Trophy winners. Brigham Young University (BYU) leads with seven different award-winners, followed by Stanford and Texas Tech with four. Fresno State and Purdue each have three winners, while Baylor, Houston, Florida, Miami (FL), Notre Dame, and Oklahoma each have two winners. Don Trull and Case Keenum are the only players to win the award multiple times, each winning the award twice.

The Sammy Baugh Trophy was awarded to Fresno State's Derek Carr in 2013, making David Carr and Derek Carr the first siblings to win the award.


Texas Tech's Graham Harrell was the 2007 recipient of the Sammy Baugh Trophy.
Houston's Case Keenum was awarded both the 2009 and 2011 Sammy Baugh Trophy.
