Murray was the most exciting player in college football this season and his success has many thinking he could reverse course and choose the NFL over the Major League Baseball.

The Buckeyes have the distinction of producing the only two-time victor in Archie Griffin. No school has ever produced back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners who were quarterbacks.

Quarterback Angelo Bertelli was the first Heisman victor for the Fighting Irish and won the the trophy in 1943.

When the announcement was made of the finalists for the 2018 Heisman Trophy, history was made as well. If Murray wins for the Sooners, they'll share the top spot with Notre Dame and the Buckeyes.

The last five Walter Camp winners won the Heisman Trophy and the last four Maxwell winners have won the Heisman.
