Sooners in the Heisman Trophy Voting

The Heisman Trophy has published the top 10 players receiving points (plus ties) in 1938, 1941, 1942, 1945 and 1951 to present, and as few as four players in the other years. However, there must be other players that actually received votes based on the number of electors and the total points of those they do publish for each year. If you have a source that shows an OU player not listed here, please contact me.
