On Saturday night, Troy Smith, QB of The Ohio State, won the Heisman Trophy in a landslide over Darren McFadden, Arkansas RB, and Brady Quinn, QB of Notre Dame. He won by the second largest margin of victory, 1,662 more points than Darren McFadden. OJ Simpson has the largest margin with 1.750 points in 1968.
The Heisman Trophy is given annually to the Most Outstanding College Football Player by the Downtown Athletic Club. The trophy has been given every year since 1935.
Smith becomes the fifth Buckeye to win the trophy. The Buckeyes actually have six Heismans as Archie Griffin is the only person to win the award in back to back years. Heisman winner Troy Smith and The Ohio State Buckeyes will now try to win the National Championship against Florida on January 8th, 2007.
