The 10 Schools That Produce The Most Heisman Winners In America

After a weekend of conference championships and seeding of the first-ever College Football Playoffs, this season had its Is dotted and its Ts crossed.

Now, we can turn our attention to that grand, old, bronze statue awarded to this year's Heisman winner.

Oregon's Marcus Mariota, Alabama's Amari Cooper and Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon form a group of prestigious finalists hailing from even more prestigious schools.

But, as great as the three players' programs are, none of them rank among the top universities for producing Heisman winners.

In fact, if Mariota were to win, he'd be the first Oregon Duck to capture the award.

That fact in itself is indicative of just how hard it is to produce Heisman winners, which makes the work of these 10 schools even more impressive.
