2013 Heisman Odds
January 5, 2013
The Heisman Trophy race for 2013 is starting already even though this college football season is wrapping up. Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel became the 11th quarterback in the last 13 seasons to capture the Heisman, including the third straight signal-caller to win the award (Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III). Manziel's task to repeat as a Heisman winner is a tall one, as the last player to claim back-to-back Heismans was Ohio State running Archie Griffin in 1974 and 1975.
Three times this decade a Heisman trophy winner has returned to school the following season, but none won the award again (Matt Leinart, Tim Tebow, and Sam Bradford).
South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is the top defensive player with the best odds to win the Heisman Trophy in 2013. Clowney looks to become the first non-offensive player to grab the Heisman since Michigan's Charles Woodson took the award in 1997.
