Heisman Trophy, Outland Trophy to be on display at Penn football home games

Fans going to Penn football home games this season will have the chance to get up close and personal with some very special hardware.

Penn Athletics announced in a release today that both the Heisman Trophy and the Outland Trophy will be on display for photo opportunities at every Penn football home game this season.

The trophies will be located in the George A. Weiss Pavilion atrium starting three hours before the game and remain there until halftime.

Both trophies have specific connections to Penn football history.

The Heisman, given out annually to the most outstanding player in college football, is named after John Heisman, who played at Penn and coached the team from 1920-22.

The Outland Trophy, given to the most outstanding interior lineman in college football, is named after John Outland, an All-American tackle/halfback for the Quakers in 1897 and 1898.

Ironically, no Penn player has ever won either trophy.
