The official College Football Playoff doesn’t begin for another month, but Georgia’s first game of the playoff takes place Saturday, when the Bulldogs head to Atlanta to take on LSU in the SEC Championship Game. If Georgia fails to win, it will be eliminated from the CFP.
As 2019 comes to a close, let’s take inventory of the five quarterback/wide receiver tandems that were most feared by defenses this season.
While there is still plenty of drama remaining in the college football season, the suspense over who will receive the Heisman Trophy is certainly over.
Joe Burrow has been exceptional all season long, and in Tuscaloosa on Saturday he further proved his merit as the greatest player of the 2019 season.
Week 11 of the college football season is just days away and we have you covered with hard-hitting insight and analysis on some of this week's most eagerly anticipated games as well as the latest trends and storylines from across the U.S.
With most of the top teams off this past weekend, there wasn’t a lot of significant news coming out of college football. We did see a big-name coach get canned, however, and we have some brilliant matchups to talk about for the upcoming Saturday. Exciting times are ahead! Unless you are Willie Taggart.
Ohio State defensive end Chase Young launched his Heisman candidacy following his performance against Wisconsin on Saturday. The junior recorded six solo tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles in Ohio State’s 38-7 demolition of the Badgers, and soon found himself in the top six of the Heisman odds as a result. Even more impressive, Young isn’t the only Buckeye holding steady in the top six in the eyes of oddsmakers. Running back J.K. Dobbins is a Heisman candidate and has the best chance to claim the trophy at his position. The fourth-favorite in the Heisman race is his teammate Justin Fields.
If there was ever any doubt that the Heisman trophy is awarded to the best player on one of the most successful teams, one need only look at the stat lines for Week 9’s games. Going into the weekend, LSU QB Joe Burrow was a deserving favorite at +175, with Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts nipping at his heels at +180. Both quarterbacks have performed fantastically this season and were undefeated heading into Saturday.
For the first time in 60 years, LSU has a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate. Regardless of how the rest of the season plays out, congratulations are owed to quarterback Joe Burrow for ascending to the top of the odds board for college football's premier individual award.
