LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald has won the Outland Trophy, given to the nation's top interior lineman.

Donald was presented with the award during the 23rd College Football Awards Show at Disney.

The senior becomes the second winner from Pittsburgh, joining offensive tackle Mark May in 1980. Donald is the third defensive tackle to win in the last decade.

Donald had 10 sacks and 26 tackles for loss this season. He also had 16 quarterback hurries and forced four fumbles.

He beat out fellow finalists Jake Matthews from Texas A&M and Cyril Richardson from Baylor.

Donald also won the Bronko Nagurski award this week as the best defensive player in the country, and the Lombardi Award given annually to the nation's top college lineman.
