Heisman Watch is the pulse of the Heisman Trophy Race

Three Heisman experts breakdown the weekend's top performers and how they impact the 2016 Heisman Trophy race.

Heisman Calculator

The Heisman Calculator is a one-of-a-kind regression model that processes simulated 2016 Heisman votes. By using player and voter data from years past, we can identify statistical influencers that drive Heisman votes.
Two-time reigning Champion

For the second consecutive year, HeismanWatch.com foretells the Heisman Trophy outcome with greater accuracy than ESPN’s panel of experts and USATODAY’s Gannett Heisman [voter] survey. Regression models can struggle when determining a coefficient ceiling so we weren’t all too disappointed that the Heisman Calculator didn’t calculate a +2100 vote/point outcome for Lamar Jackson. With that said, the marginal difference between Jackson and Deshaun Watson were virtually identical, and to us, that’s whats most important. We specifically designed the calculator to tell us how many vote/points separate candidate-to-candidate. That is exactly what it did and we’re very excited about that. We also listed out the top 6 finishers in perfect sequential order.

  • Lamar Jackson

    Quarterback, Louisville

  • Deshaun Watson

    Quarterback, Clemson

  • Baker Mayfield

    Quarterback, Oklahoma

  • Dede Westbrook

    Wide Receiver, Oklahoma
