Ladies and gentleman, your Heisman front-runner has arrived.
It’s hard to imagine C.J. Stroud wins the award after Ohio State’s shocking loss to Michigan on Saturday night.
Bryce Young figures to be the overwhelming favorite after his heroic performance on Saturday night.
“What a clutch throw by Bryce Young and amazing catch by Brooks to tie it late at Auburn. Very well could be a Heisman Moment. Overtime,” one fan said.
“A 98 Yard TD Drive capped off with a game-tying TD Pass with 24 seconds left. If they win this game, Bryce Young has his Heisman moment,” another said.
The Heisman is Bryce Young’s to lose, but he’ll first have to beat Auburn in overtime.
