Notes: A preseason candidate for the 2008 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the top senior quarterback in the nation, Hoyer was a consensus honorable mention All-Big Ten Conference choice in his final year with Michigan State....Threw for 2,404 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior to finish his career third among Spartan signal-callers in pass attempts (896), third in both passing yards (6,159) and completions (500), and sixth in touchdown passes (35)...While Hoyer was in charge of the offense, it appeared the scheme generally ran through running back Javon Ringer who averaged 30 carries pergame and was one of the nation's leaders with 22 rushing touchdowns, which meant the signal-caller could take some of the pressure off himself...Had a successful 2007 campaign as well when he was again an honorable mention All-Big Ten performer by ranking among the league's best with his passer rating (131.9), passing yards per game (209.6) and total offense (201.5 ypg)...Finished his junior campaign with 2,725 yards passing and 20 touchdowns...When pressed into service, Hoyer could just as easily throw a pick as he could make a spectacular play for the Spartans.
