The Ole Miss Rebels are approaching one of the biggest seasons in school history in 2024, and quarterback Jaxson Dart is expected to be a large part of the team's success.

Dart led the Rebels to their first-ever 11-win season in 2023, capped off with a win in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl over the Penn State Nittany Lions in December. With the College Football Playoff expanding to include 12 teams this season, Dart is planning on making Ole Miss a legitimate threat to not only make that field, but compete for a national championship in the process.

As you can see on the list above, the Heisman Trophy's reputation of becoming a "quarterback award" seems to currently hold true in Vegas' eyes.
