The Heisman Trophy has always been a symbol of excellence in college football, and the schools that have produced the most winners are national powerhouses. Schools like Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oklahoma have been dominant forces in college football for decades, and their success in producing Heisman winners is no exception. USC has been known to produce Heisman Trophy-winning running backs throughout the years, but the award has largely been dominated by schools from the Midwest.
