Every season, this page tracks the favorites for college football’s most prestigious award, the Heisman Trophy, by averaging out the futures available at major online sportsbooks.
Predicting who will win is a difficult exercise, especially in the preseason. From 2018 to 2020, the winner – Kyler Murray (2018), Joe Burrow (2019), and Devota Smith (2020) – were either off the board or extreme longshots before Week 1. Bryce Young finally bucked that trend in 2021, opening as the second-favorite and never falling out of the top five.Advertising Disclosure

Who Usually Wins the Heisman Trophy?
Quarterbacks had a run of four straight Heismans broken in 2020 by Alabama WR Devonta Smith. On the whole, though, pivots are still dominating.
Heisman Trophy Winners Since 2000
|2020||Devonta Smith||Wide Receiver|
|2015||Derrick Henry||Running back|
|2011||Robert Griffin III||Quarterback|
|2009||Mark Ingram Jr||Running back|
|2005||Reggie Bush||Running back|
For those of you playing along at home, that’s 17 QBs and 3 running backs.
The last Heisman to go to a different position was Charles Woodson’s 1997 win. Before that, it was Desmond Howard in 1991, then Johnny Rodgers (who was kind of a running back) in 1972, and then Notre Dame end Leon Hart in 1949.

Heisman Trophies by Conference
The SEC and Big Ten dominate the top candidates for 2019, yet again. This is not new.
But while the SEC has actually followed through with their Heisman Trophy candidates lately, the Big Ten has only produced two winners since 2000 and none since 2006 (Troy Smith, Ohio State).
