Here's what you need to know about the Heisman nominees before the ceremony
WATCH I You probably didn't know this about the 2016 Heisman Trophy nominees.
On Saturday night in New York, arguably the most prestigious award in college football will be handed out to one athlete. The award is given to the best college football player during the regular season.
The winner of the highly-coveted individual award is voted on from a pool of at least three finalists. The recipient of the honor joins some pretty elite company in doing so.
Some of the Heisman winners of the past went on to have successful careers in the NFL.
A few of these past winners include current Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, Charles Woodson, Tony Dorsett, and Bo Jackson.
