Countdown to Kickoff: 68 Days

As we continue on our daily countdown towards the 2007 season, we have now reached 68, and to represent this number is USC's 1968 Heisman Trophy award winner O.J. Simpson. The College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Indiana has a display featuring art portraits of every Heisman Trophy winner, and below you can see O.J.'s...

Say what you will about this guy, but he is easily one of the top 5 running backs ever to play the game. This blog is celebrating his time at USC, especially the year 1968, in which he brought home the program's 2nd Heisman Trophy award. When someone mentions Tailback U, the first player that comes to mind is usually Simpson. He ran for 1,709 yards and 22 TDs during that 1968 season, which was good enough to win the Heisman by a record margin of 1,750 points that still stands today. He also took home the Maxwell Award and Walter Camp Award that season, and was an All-American.

Fight On!
