ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit Thinks 1 Heisman Trophy Candidate Has Separated Himself

Kirk Herbstreit On College Football's Most "Intimidating" Stadium


ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit appeared on Get Up! this morning and discussed everything college football. We're now four games into the regular season.

Herbstreit was asked about this year's Heisman Trophy race.

Unsurprisingly, the ESPN analyst believes one candidate has already separated himself from the pack.

That candidate: Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa.

"What Tua is doing is not fair to the rest of the planet," he said.

Tagoavailoa has been brilliant through four games. He's emerged as the clear favorite to win the award and the betting odds reflect that.

There's a long way to go, though.

Herbstreit also mentioned Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins. If Haskins has a big game against Penn State this weekend, he'll jump up to the top of the race, too.

Stay tuned.
