Blackie nailed it. To the wall. Congrats. You either know your college football or you should've bought a lottery ticket the same day you posted your picks.

Never thought they'd give it to a freshman.

Glad they gave it to who they thought was most deserving.

Now if one day they can give it a defensive player that would be something.

Charles Woodson is the only one to win while primarily being a defensive player but he did also play wide receiver.

BBO, who did Woodson beat out that year?

That overrated Manning kid from Tennessee. Couldn't even beat out a primarily defensive player for an offensive-only award. Pathetic, but telling.

Since the player in the Heisman statue is carrying a football, I seriously doubt if it will ever go to to a defensive player. No defensive player in my recollection was as much of a "quarterback" on that side of the line as Te'O. If he can't win it, I can't imagine who could.

The year Andre Ware (Houston) won it, I believe you'll be surprised at who came in seventh.

Good guess, but no. I think Sanders won it in 1988, then turned pro.

HINT: The same person came in 9th in 1987 as a freshman, then had an off-year in 1988, then finished 7th in 1989. Seemed as if his career would never take off....then BOOM.
