ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum revealed his pick for this year's Heisman Trophy award on Get Up! this morning.

The voice of the SEC Network isn't going with Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. He's going with Clemson's Trevor Lawrence.

Finebaum likes the Tigers star quarterback to win this year's award.

"That will be Trevor Lawrence," Finebaum said when asked for his Heisman Trophy pick. "I think he's the best player in the country."

"He's on the best team."

Lawrence is coming off one of the best true freshman seasons in recent college football history and he's being asked to improve as a sophomore.

The potential future No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft is set to lead Clemson's defense of a national championship, with the Tigers starting the year at the top of all of the polls.

Clemson is set to open its regular season on Thursday night against Georgia Tech. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. E.T. The game will be on the new ACC Network.
