SportsNetwork – Former Heisman Trophy winners Matt Leinart, Eric Crouch and Rashaan Salaam are among 76 Football Bowl Subdivision players on the ballot for election into the 2016 class of the College Football Hall of Fame.
Leinart, the 2004 Heisman recipient and a two-time First-Team All-American at Southern California, is on the ballot for the first time. He led the Trojans to three straight national championship games from 2003-05, helping the school to consecutive Associated Press titles in ’03 and ’04.
Crouch captured the 2001 Heisman as a senior quarterback at Nebraska after leading the Cornhuskers to the national title game that season. He still owns the NCAA record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 59 and led the Huskers to a record of 42-9 with four bowl berths during his career.
