Heisman Trophy to be awarded Jan. 5

The 86th annual Heisman Trophy presentation will occur under unprecedented circumstances on Jan. 5.

Details were announced Saturday for the ceremony, which will take place for the first time at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn., studios due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Chris Fowler will host the one-hour ESPN telecast (7 p.m. ET) for the 27th consecutive year.

All Heisman finalists will appear via satellite from either their homes or schools.

“Although college football may look and feel a lot different, there is no shortage of incredible talent on the gridiron this year,” Heisman Trophy Trust president Mike Comerford said in a statement. “One thing the pandemic cannot change is the spirt of a true winner and we are eager to again celebrate that winner on the annual Heisman Trophy Ceremony.”

This season’s Heisman hopefuls include quarterbacks Mac Jones of Alabama, Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trevor Lawrence of Clemson, Kyle Trask of Florida and Ian Book of Notre Dame.

The voting deadline is Dec. 21, with finalists revealed on Dec. 24.

The Heisman Trophy Trust announced a new multi-year agreement with ESPN, which has hosted the presentation ceremony since 1994.

“The Heisman Trophy is one of the most iconic awards in sports and ESPN is honored to have annually presented the Ceremony for nearly three decades,” said ESPN director of programming Kurt Dargis. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Heisman Trust in the years ahead as we come together to celebrate college football and one of the sport’s enduring traditions.”
