In the 1957 season, the Aggies won their first eight games and were ranked Number 1 in the AP Poll.[2] The team lost their last three games after uncertainty over whether their coach, Bear Bryant, would be leaving the school.[3] Although injured early in the season, Crow was able to play in 7 games in his senior season. He rushed for 562 yards on 129 carries, with 6 touchdowns. Crow also caught 2 passes and passed for 5 touchdowns. While playing on defense, he intercepted the ball 5 times.[4] Bryant told the Heisman voters that they ought "'to do away with the thing'" if they didn't vote for Crow.[3][5]

Crow was named a scholastic All-American[4] and won the Heisman on December 3, 1957,[6] defeating Iowa tackle Alex Karras.[3] Crow claims not to have understood the importance of the award until sponsors flew him and his family to New York for the presentation.[7] As of 2008, he is the only Aggie to win the Heisman, and he was the only one of Bryant's players to win.[3][8] Bryant left for Alabama shortly after Crow received the Heisman.[9]
