When is the Heisman Trophy ceremony? Date, odds, finalists for 2023 award presentation

The powers-that-be in the world of college football are rolling out the red carpet for this year’s Heisman Trophy reveal. Can you really blame them?

This year’s class features a litany of talented players. Some of them have led their sides on the brink of college football immortality, while others have cemented their statuses as future NFL talents with standout showings on the grandest stage.

LSU’s Jayden Daniels and Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. figure to be the favorites; both enjoyed highlight-reel campaigns in their second seasons with their respective teams, showing themselves to be as good as advertised even as the stakes rose.

They weren’t the only ones, however. Oregon’s Bo Nix brought the Ducks back into the national consciousness. And if it weren’t for the heroics of Jalen Milroe, who knows if Alabama would even have a chance to capture a national title.

How does the Heisman voting process work?

Nine hundred twenty-eight Heisman votes were tallied this year as the nation’s greatest college football minds work to figure out who is the most deserving candidate in this season’s class of finalists. The breakdown of the selectors is as follows: 870 media members spanning six different geographic regions in the United States (Far West, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, South and Southwest), 57 living Heisman Trophy winners and one corporate-sponsored fan vote. 

Voters were allowed to select any three players, in order of preference. A given voter’s first-place vote is worth three points; their second-place vote is worth two points; and their third-place is worth one point.
