How many quarterbacks won a national title in the first season replacing a Heisman Trophy winner?
Confused? Let's break down the question.
Thirty-five quarterbacks have won the Heisman. Twenty-five of them left college football after their Heisman season. Of the quarterbacks who replaced them as starter the following season, how many led their team to a national title in that first season?
Like a couple other questions, frequent readers of HERO Sports may know the answer.
