Paul Finebaum believes 1 player is undoubtedly the Heisman Trophy winner
The Heisman Trophy race has shifted all season long. There’s 1 ESPN analyst that believes the race is over.
Paul Finebaum believes that the Heisman race is done. Alabama QB Bryce Young wrapped it up with his performance against No. 1 Georgia, according to Finebaum.
Young on the day was 26-0f-44, for a 59% completion rate, throwing for 421 yards, 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.
“It was masterful,” Finebaum said on SportsCenter, according to Adam Spencer of SaturdayDownSouth. “A week before (against Auburn), he had a Heisman moment, but he didn’t have a Heisman game. This was absolutely a Rembrandt on the canvas for Bryce Young. I don’t want to upset my bosses who are going to be promoting the Heisman award next week, but it’s a non-starter. This thing is over. Bryce Young has won the Heisman Trophy. There will be some debate who sits with him on the front row in New York, but when all of us start sending in our ballots today, Bryce Young will be at the top of most of the lists. So, he’s won the Heisman Trophy.”
Young was in a conversation with Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud just a few weeks ago, but Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson has wiggled his way into the discussion. Is it a lock as Finebaum says? Or could someone else win?
We’ll find out in a week, with the Heisman Trophy ceremony taking place on Dec. 11 at 8:00 ET on ESPN.
