Narrow Heisman race
The last Heisman trophy race that saw a winner receive less than 60% of the first place votes was back in 2009 when former Alabama running back Mark Ingram walked away with the trophy. This season’s race could shape up to be the closest that we have seen in quite some time.
A trio of quarterbacks can each make a convincing case to be crowned as Heisman winners. Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray, Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa are more than likely the faces you will see at the Heisman ceremony on December 8th.
Murray has proven all year that he is arguably the most dangerous quarterback in all of college football. Highlighting the inconsistencies of Ohio State must also be accompanied by the fact that they may not be 11-1 and Big Ten champions without the presence of Haskins.
While Alabama has a plethora of NFL talent, Tagovailoa showed that he was the best player on the roster for them this season.
Variables will come into play when selecting the ultimate winner. However, these three will make this a tight battle for the Heisman.
