The 2009 NCAA Division I FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) football season, or the college football season, began on September 2, 2009,[2] progressed through the regular season and bowl season, and (aside from all-star exhibition games that followed the bowl games) concluded with the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) National Championship Game in Pasadena, California on January 7, 2010, featuring the Alabama Crimson Tide defeating the Texas Longhorns for the National Championship by the score of 37-21.

This season saw two milestones related to the Heisman Trophy:

Rule changes for 2009

The NCAA football rules committee proposed several rule changes for 2009.[5] Before these rules were officially adopted, these proposals had to be approved by the Playing Rules Oversight Panel. The rule changes include the following:

  • If the home team wears colored jerseys, the visiting team may also wear colored jerseys; so long as the two teams have agreed to do so. This comes after a traditional USC-UCLA game where both teams wore their home uniforms. Previously, the visiting team would be charged a first-half timeout for illegal equipment.[6]
  • If the punter carries the ball outside of the tackle box, he is no longer protected under the roughing the kicker penalty.
  • Deliberately grabbing the chin strap is now included as part of the face mask penalty.
  • The edge of the tackle box is defined as being five yards to the left and right of the snapper, rather than two parallel lines from the position of the offensive tackles.

Records

  • Brandon West of Western Michigan set the NCAA Division I FBS records for career all-purpose yards and career kick return yards. On November 14, West broke the record of 7,573 all-purpose yards set by DeAngelo Williams of Memphis.[7] Against Michigan State on November 7, West broke the record of 2,945 return yards set by Jessie Henderson of SMU.[8] West finished the season setting the records at 3,118 kick return yards and 7,764 total yards.[9][10]
  • Russell Wilson of North Carolina State set a new Division I record for most passes attempted without an interception, breaking the previous record of 325 set by André Woodson of Kentucky from 2006–07. Wilson broke the record in the third quarter of the Pack's 45–14 win over Gardner-Webb on September 19.[11] The streak ended at 379 on October 3 against Wake Forest. Wilson's last interception had been in the third quarter of the Wolfpack's game against Clemson on September 13, 2008.[12]
  • Texas' Colt McCoy picked up his 43rd career win as a starting quarterback, breaking the previous FBS record of 42 by Georgia's David Greene, with a 51–20 win over Kansas on November 21.[13] The record was extended to 45 with wins over Texas A&M in the regular-season finale and Nebraska in the Big 12 Championship Game. However, his streak ended at the BCS Championship when he was injured early in the first quarter, and the Longhorns lost 37-21.
  • On December 12, 2009 against rival Army, Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs ran for his 24th rushing touchdown on the season, giving him the single-season record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback.[15]

On December 26, Florida head coach Urban Meyer announced his resignation due to health concerns, effective after the Gators' Sugar Bowl appearance.[79] However, Meyer had a change of heart and announced the following day that he would instead take an indefinite leave of absence, and expected to be back coaching by the start of the 2010 season. Offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will take over Meyer's duties until he decides to return.[80]
