Make sure to read Heisman Watch Week 13 before reading this. This weekend didn’t really have a huge impact on the big names in the Heisman race but more of the dark horse players who I’ve rarely talked about this season. So with that being said, let’s take a look at how these players performed this weekend.
Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
As of now Burrow is the Heisman favorite as i’ve said multiple times before I don’t see how he could lose this award at this point but anything is possible. In the 50-7 win over Texas A&M Burrow put up 352 passing yards and 3 touchdowns and looks to put up similar numbers next weekend vs #4 Georgia.
Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State
As a Michigan fan it pains me to say Fields is 1 of 3 Heisman potential players on this Buckeyes team and probably has the best chance of winning the award on his team. In the huge 56-27 win over #13 Michigan Fields put on a show by recording 302 passing yards and 4 touchdowns.
Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma
Hurts lead the Sooners to a 36-16 win over #21 Oklahoma State in Bedlam on Saturday by putting up 136 passing yards and 2 total touchdowns. This is a very rare stat line for an Oklahoma, Oklahoma State game.
J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
Like I mentioned before, Ohio State has 3 Heisman caliber players but I’m not sure if any of them have done enough to top Joe Burrow. What Dobbins did against Michigan was something I’ve never seen before. That was the single most dominant game from a RB that I’ve ever seen. In the 56-27 win Dobbins recorded 211 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns.
Chase Young, DE, Ohio State
Last but certainly not least we have Chase Young. He is probably the best player in college football and should be the #1 draft pick this draft. A lot of people have been saying the Heisman is between him or Joe Burrow but personally I don’t think that’s true, especially with his performance this weekend vs Michigan. He had no tackles or sacks this weekend which really hurts his case for the Heisman, if he were to have a huge game with tons of tackles and sacks I would say he has a real shot at the Heisman but as of now I still think it’s all Joe Burrow’s award.
