Welcome to the Heisman Trophy conversation, Mr. Hutchinson.

Aidan Hutchinson’s performance in Michigan’s 42-3 victory over Iowa on Saturday night was the latest example as to why the talented defensive end needs to be in the discussion as the best player in college football. Everyone attending the B1G Championship Game knows it, too.

Hutchinson was credited with 4 tackles, 1 sack and 7 quarterback pressures in Michigan’s victory on Saturday. For that, he was named the B1G Championship Game Most Valuable Player.

When FOX’s Joel Klatt presented Hutchinson with the honor, the chant “Hutch for Heisman” broke out. It wasn’t just fans involved, plenty of the defensive end’s teammates were shouting, as well.

Hutchinson is up to 58 tackles and 14 sacks this season, to go along with 12 quarterback hurries, 3 pass break-ups and 2 forced fumbles. He’s proven to be one of the most dominant forces in college football.

During a year when no single player has separated himself in the Heisman race, Hutchinson has wiggled his way into the conversation because of his late-season performance. Will it be enough to claim college football’s most prestigious individual honor?

Everyone in Indianapolis on Saturday night sure thinks so.
