NCAA Football: Heisman Winners vs. AP Players of the Year
There is a good deal of hype and hoopla surrounding the annual Heisman Trophy presentation.
The Heisman has been awarded to college football’s best player since 1935. For a list of all the Heisman Trophy winners, check out my source, sports-reference.com. By most counts (including mine), it is the official word on the matter.
But in 1998, the Associated Press came out with their version of the award, the Player of the Year. Usually the Heisman and AP POY have been in agreement, but there have been four times when that was not so. They are highlighted below.
