COLLEGE STATION, Texas —

Texas A&M's Von Miller has won the Butkus Award as college football's best linebacker.

The senior was surprised on campus by the award's namesake. He beat out Luke Kuechly of Boston College in voting by journalists, coaches, scouts and recruiters.

They were followed by Akeem Ayers of UCLA, Bruce Carter of North Carolina and Justin Houston of Georgia.

Miller finished the regular season with 59 tackles, 34 solo, forced three fumbles and recovered two, and was defensive captain for the 9-3 Aggies, who earned a postseason trip to the Cotton Bowl.

He led the Big 12 in sacks for the second straight season with 9 1/2.
