Nick Bosa might be the best player in college football. Ohio State's star defensive end has certainly played like it through two-plus weeks, anyway.

The Buckeyes' star pass rusher, the younger brother of former top NFL Draft pick Joey Bosa, has looked like a future league star this season. He's showing out on a national stage tonight, too.

Nick Bosa just had a strip sack on TCU's quarterback near the goal line. It resulted in an Ohio State defensive touchdown.

Offensive linemen have no chance against him.

It's basically impossible for a defensive player like Bosa to win the Heisman Trophy. The last defensive player to get serious hype for the award was Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh. He finished in fourth place in 2009.

Does Bosa think he has a chance to win it this year? Not really, unfortunately.

"I don't think any defensive player is winning a Heisman," he told reporters this week. "So, we'll see."

He's probably right. If you're not a quarterback or a running back, your chances of even getting considered for the award are incredibly small.

But Nick Bosa is a special player, and if he's leading an undefeated Ohio State team in late November, the hype should continue to rise.
