Pitt's And Penn State's Heisman History Ranks Near The Top

In Tony Dorsett and John Cappelletti, Pitt and Penn State have each had only a single Heisman trophy winner in their history. But according to a recent article by CBS Sports, both rank near the top of college football when it comes to the award.

That's because each has had several players garner consideration for the Heisman in past years. CBS Sports assigned a total point value to schools, awarding ten points for a Heisman win, nine points for a second-place finish, eight points for a third-place finish, and so on ... all the way down to one point for a tenth-place finish.

Pitt ranked 12th of every school with a total of 88 points and local school Penn State ranked eighth with 99. Notre Dame topped the list with 277.
