The regular college football season has come and gone, and now all that’s left is for the Bowl games to be played. Before that, though, the biggest award in all of college football (and possibly sports) will be announced, and we will have a new Heisman Trophy winner.
Yesterday, five finalists were announced to be up for the prestigious award. Among those names are Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, Clemson quarterback Deshaun Waton, Oklahoma quarterback (you notice a pattern here) Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma wide receiver Dede Westbrook, and Michigan linebacker/defensive back/punt returner/whatever else they need him to do Jabrill Peppers. It is a loaded field with great players, but it’s pretty safe to rule out both Peppers and Westbrook because the award has typically gone to quarterbacks for the most part, with the exception of a few running backs here and there. That’s not to say that Peppers and Westbrook aren’t great players and aren’t worthy of being finalists, I just think that anyone with half a brain realizes that the trophy isn’t going to either of them.
Having said all of that, I think it’s pretty safe to rule out Baker Mayfield as well, which means the award is going to come down to Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson. Watson had better team success this year and even beat Jackson head-to-head earlier in the season, but I think the award is Jackson’s to lose. His team may have struggled down the stretch, but he put up ridiculous statistics this year by throwing 30 touchdowns and running in for 21 himself. 51 total touchdowns is just absurd to me, and I think it’s safe to say that Jackson will be the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner.
