2014 Heisman Trophy voting results: Marcus Mariota sweeps regions, sets ballot record
Oregon’s vaunted signal-caller dominates voting for the 2014 Heisman and sets a record for most landing on the most ballots, but the biggest record barely stays clear.
Marcus Mariota was named on 95.16% of all ballots, highest of all-time for the Heisman.

Mariota didn’t quite hit the record for most points as a percentage of possible points; that still belongs to 2006 winner Troy Smith of Ohio State, who had 91.63 percent. Mariota came in second all-time there, with 90.9 percent. That’ll do, right? That’ll do just fine.
Here’s the voting points breakdown by candidate.
Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon III: 1,250
Alabama WR Amari Cooper: 1,023
TCU QB Trevone Boykin: 218
Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett: 78
Florida State QB Jameis Winston: 51
Indiana RB Tevin Coleman: 44
Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott: 42
Arizona LB Scooby Wright: 21
Baylor QB Bryce Petty: 13

And here is your voting points breakdown by region. As you can see, Mariota wasn’t seriously threatened anywhere in America, even in the Amari Cooper-friendly South and Melvin Gordon’s backyard in the Midwest.
