2018-19 Heisman winner prediction
With Saquon Barkley off to the NFL, Jonathan Taylor is undisputedly the best running back in the college game and a worthy Heisman favorite. With his electrifying pace and no-nonsense running, Taylor has a good chance to be the first running back to win the award since Derrick Henry in 2015.
That said, the Heisman voters still love a good dual-threat quarterback. With eight of the ten previous winners being mobile gunslingers, can Tua Tagovailoa continue his outstanding campaign and become the third Crimson Tide player to win the Stiff Arm Trophy? After Tagovailoa, Oklahoma‘s Kyler Murray is another favorite who’s lit up the stat sheet. Will Taylor, Tagovailoa, and Murray finish in the top three?
Are you ready for bowl season?
The “big” bowls may be a few weeks away, but Arizona State vs. Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl should guarantee a lot of offense and a ton of points.
Also keep an eye on Northern Illinois vs. UAB in the Boca Raton Bowl. The Huskies recently overcame a 19-point deficit in the MAC Championship Game and should have little trouble piling points on the Blazers.
