COMPARE: NOTRE DAME
Before he was dominating the NFL for the Green Bay Packers, Hornung became the only Heisman winner in college football history to win the award on a losing team. Hornung's Fighting Irish went just 2-8 in 1956, but his 1,1337 total yards of offense (420 rushing; 917 passing) was good for second in the nation and enough to bring home the hardware.
