2023 Heisman Trophy Top 10 Announced

The fifth through 10th spots in the 2023 Heisman balloting was released Friday night (Dec. 8) on The Top 10 Heisman Trophy Reveal Show Presented by Nissan that aired live on ESPN.

The six standouts that complete the 2023 Heisman Trophy Top 10 complement the top four finishers that were announced Monday, which include (listed alphabetically) LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels, Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., Oregon quarterback Bo Nix and Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr.

Joining that quartet are fifth-place Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis, sixth-place Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe, seventh-place Oklahoma State running back Ollie Gordon II, eighth-place Missouri running back Cody Schrader, ninth-place Michigan running back Blake Corum and 10th-place Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy.

The 2023 Heisman Trophy winner will be announced during the televised Heisman Trophy Ceremony Presented by Nissan that will air Saturday (Dec. 9) at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Penix Jr. finished eighth and Corum seventh in 2022, respectively. 

Michigan’s Corum and McCarthy mark the fifth time in the last six years there has been at least two players from the same team in the Heisman Top 10 balloting.

For the second straight year, Alabama’s quarterback finishes sixth. Last year it was Bryce Young, which followed his 2021 Heisman win.

Travis is Florida State’s highest finisher since Jameis Winston won the trophy in 2013. Winston also finished sixth in 2014.

Gordon’s seventh-place finish is the highest for Oklahoma State since quarterback Mason Rudolph finished in the same spot in 2017.

Schrader’s eighth-place finish makes him Missouri’s first Top 10 finisher since Chase Daniels was fourth in 2007.
