From Heisman to bowls

It's not always a Heisman-winning performance in bowls

Posted: Monday January 01, 2001 10:32 PM

Florida State's Chris Weinke was hoping to capitalize on the recent success of Heisman winners in bowl games, but his offense faltered in a 13-2 loss to Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl. Weinke is only the second of the past eight Heisman winners to lose a bowl game, while three led their teams to national championships. Here's a look at the performances of Heisman winners in bowl games.
