What: The most prestigious award in all of college sports will be awarded tonight in New York. The Heisman Trophy goes to the MVP in college football. Past award winners include Tim Tebow, Barry Sanders and OJ Simpson. This year’s Heisman Trophy is extra exciting because it has all the makings of a great reality TV series, including the villain, the underdog, and the good guy. Based on position alone quarterbacks are favored to win. In the past 10 years, eight quarterbacks have won the award. The Heisman Trophy ceremony is one the few times a game won’t be on at a bar. Who doesn’t love an award ceremony, even if there isn’t a red carpet.
