CLASH OF THE HEISMANS
September 08, 2011
SINCE 1935, 76 MEN HAVE RECEIVED THE Heisman Trophy, college football's highest individual honor. The vagaries of the schedule (or the luck of the title-game or bowl draw) fortuitously have 20 times pitted recipients against fellow honorees. (Of course we fans usually didn't know this at the time.) Many collisions were epic; others did not live up to their billing. On the following pages we commemorate these occasions—and we'll let you decide which clashes truly are Heisman-worthy.
