With as long as college football has been around, to be the first to do something means you have to have done something pretty remarkable. One of the things that we have never seen in this wonderful sport is a freshman win the Heisman Trophy.
Now before you laugh and think it is impossible, many thought a sophomore winning the award was never going to happen, until Tim Tebow pulled that off in 2007 and then Mark Ingram followed him a couple of years later.
If there is ever going to be a freshman to win the award, he would have to have a season that we have yet to see in college football. And if it is going to happen this season, Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon would likely have the best shot, especially with the performance he had in Week 1 against the Michigan Wolverines.
With nearly an entire season left to play, let's take a look at the Heisman odds for Alabama's true freshman and see if he really has a shot at making college football history.
