Saturday night, either Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck or Trent Richardson will add his name to the list of Heisman Trophy winners. Tyrann Mathieu and Montee Ball are also nominated, but Mathieu plays defense and Ball has a famous quarterback.
The forecasted Griffin victory would be the first in Baylor Bears history and the first for a player from a Texas school since Ricky Williams in 1998. Richardson would be the second Alabama Crimson Tide player ever to win, but he'd also be the second in three years, after Mark Ingram in 2009. One Stanford Cardinal player has won the trophy: Jim Plunkett in 1970.
Mathieu could be the first LSU Tigers Heisman-winner since the great Billy Cannon in 1959, not to mention only the second primarily non-offensive winner ever*, after Charles Woodson in 1997. The Wisconsin Badgers boast two previous winners: Alan Ameche in 1954 and Ron Dayne in 1999.
* Which goes to show, as it does every year, how without meaning this entire thing is. That, and Mark Ingram winning it.
Here's the complete list of winners:
