Joel Klatt includes several Buckeyes on Heisman list heading into Rivalry Week
There may be two weeks left for players to make their case for the Heisman Trophy, but the race feels pretty much over at this point. LSU quarterback Joe Burrow seems to have locked up the award with his play this season.
But it is college football and anything can happen.
As we approach the final week of the regular season, FOX analyst Joel Klatt has updated his Heisman list, including some of the best names from the sport. Several of those players just happened to come from Ohio State.
Klatt included three Buckeyes in his Heisman watch: DE Chase Young, QB Justin Fields and RB J.K. Dobbins. He also included Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor.
Like most, though, Klatt has Burrow as the No. 1 guy right now. It’s Burrow’s award to lose, and that seems unlikely given the tremendous season he’s had this year. Below is Klatt’s complete list:

After the top 2 there are several deserving players…Hoping they bring 5 to 7 of them as finalists

Klatt has gone on the record many times saying he believes Young is the best and most dominant player in college football. But with Burrows numbers, over 4,000 passing yards and a near 80 percent completion rate, he’ll be hard to pass for the Heisman.
It will be interesting to see who all earns an invitation to New York this year. There are several deserving candidates.
