Make sure to read Heisman Watch: Week 11 before you read this. There is nothing worse than a season ending injury and there is definitely nothing worse than a season ending injury to a Heisman potential player this late in the season. Tua was still in the running for the award and now he’s done for the year which leaves the Heisman Race to Joe Burrow, Jalen Hurts and Justin Fields and may even open a spot for a defensive player. With that being said, let’s get into how all these players performed this weekend.
Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
In my opinion I think Joe has already locked up this award and there is not much that is going to stop that but anything can still happen. In the 58-37 win over Ole Miss Joe recorded 489 passing yards and 5 touchdowns.
Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
Like I mentioned before it was absolutely terrible to see a guy like this go down. With his season most likely over he finishes this year with 2,840 passing yards 33 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Unfortunately this will also end Tua’s run for the Heisman
Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma
Hurts led the Sooners to a record breaking comeback on Saturday night. The Sooners were losing 28-3 at one point which we all know is not a safe lead in football and Hurts came out in the second half to lead his team back to a win. In this win Hurts put up 297 passing yards, 114 rushing yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception.
Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State
In the Buckeyes 56-21 win over Rutgers Fields recorded his first 300 yard game of the year. He had 305 passing yards and 4 touchdowns.
