Take for instance, Ohio State’s Eddie George.  This incredible running machine averaged 150 yards rushing a game. Archie Griffin? He only rushed for 5,589 yards on 924 carries in his career.  Oh yeah…did I mention he took home the Heisman hardware two times?

So for starters, let’s cover the basics. What is this Heisman thing and why should you care about it? Continue reading NCAA Football 13 Playbook #4 – Heisman Challenge Dev Blog
