Ka'Deem Carey made a little more Arizona football history tonight.

Though it wasn't the finish he was hoping for, Carey ended up 10th in the Heisman Trophy voting, becoming the first UA player to ever finish in the top ten. 

Carey received two first-place votes, 14 second-place votes and 36 third-place votes.

The order of finish was:

1. Jameis Winston, Florida State

2. A.J. McCarron, Alabama

3. Jordan Lynch, Northern Illinois

4. Andre Williams, Boston College

5. Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

6. Tre Mason, Auburn

7. Bryce Petty, Baylor

8. Derek Carr, Fresno State

9. Braxton Miller, Ohio State

10. Ka'Deem Carey, Arizona

Carey said this week it "meant a lot" to him that he wasn't one of the six players invited to New York City for the Heisman presentation and that the "snub" could impact his decision to return for his senior season or not.

Carey wasn't the only Pac-12 player overlooked. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota was left out of the top ten all together, despite throwing for 3,412 yards, 30 TDs and 4 INTs on the season.
