EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

University of Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is the favorite to win this year's Heisman Trophy, according to ESPN experts.

Six of the 10 ESPN experts who were polled picked Mariota to be the winner. The other four had him coming in second.

They even picked Mariota to beat out Jameis Winston, the Florida State quarterback who won last year's Heisman winner. Other players named in the poll: Georgia running back Todd Gurley, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley and Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty, among others.

No Oregon Ducks player has ever won the Heisman Trophy.

The Oregon State Beavers have had one Heisman winner - Terry Baker in 1962.
