Pitt's Donald sweeps defensive awards

Updated: Thursday, December 12 2013, 11:58 PM EST

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald has won the Chuck Bednarik Award as the defensive player of the year in college football.
   He also won the Outland Trophy, given to the nation's top interior lineman, earlier Thursday evening during the 23rd College Football Awards Show at Disney. It capped a big week for Donald, who took home 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.
   Donald becomes the first Atlantic Coast Conference player to win the Bednarik Award since Maryland linebacker EJ Henderson in 2002. The senior finished the season with 54 tackles, 10 sacks, 26 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles.
   Donald was selected over fellow finalists Anthony Barr from UCLA and C.J. Mosley of Alabama.
