2018 College Football Season
Last Year Picks:
With the announcement of this year’s Heisman Trophy winner just a few weeks away, it appears that once again a quarterback will win the award. Only one non-QB has won the award in the last 10 seasons. Here’s a look at this year’s leading contenders.
Jameis Winston, QB Florida State
The redshirt freshman has had a remarkable season that is now clouded with some doubt as a result of his off-the-field troubles. Whether that plays a role in his Heisman endeavors remains to be seen. Winston has thrown for 3,163 yards, completed 69.6 percent of his passes, and thrown for 32 touchdowns against just seven interceptions. He has led the Seminoles to an 12-0 record and what appears to be a sure national title game berth.
A.J. McCarron, QB Alabama
With two national championships under his belt, McCarron’s bid for the coveted trophy took a blow with an upset loss to Auburn. The ‘Bama QB will never have the statistics of some of the other candidates, but none may be more valuable to his team. McCarron has thrown for 2,399 yards and 23 touchdowns this season. He completes nearly 69 percent of his passes and has thrown just five interceptions. The Tide are 11-1 and McCarron has lost just three games as a starter.
Johnny Manziel, QB Texas A&M
Last year’s winner, Johnny Football, has had a tremendous season, but his Aggies are 8-4 and out of the SEC and national championship pictures. Still, Manziel has managed to throw for 3,537 yards and 32 touchdowns while running for 665 yards and eight more scores. While his stats are great, the luster of his win last year has dimmed and he is considered a darkhorse candidate this season.
Jordan Lynch, QB Northern Illinois
There may be no player more valuable to his team than Lynch. For the second consecutive season, Lynch has thrown for over 2,000 yards and rushed for more than 1,000. With the MAC championship game and a bowl game looming in the future, Lynch may just pass for over 3,000 yards again. He has 2,457 yards passing, 22 passing touchdowns, 1,755 yards rushing, and 20 rushing touchdowns. The Huskies are 12-0 and set to win another MAC title and earn another BCS bowl bid.
Andre Williams, RB Boston College
Williams ran his way onto this list as he became the first RB to go over 2,000 yards since 2007 when three players did it. He has five games of over 200 yards, including three consecutive. He has 2,073 yards and 16 touchdowns and Boston College is 7-5, much improved from their two wins a year ago. The only RB to win the Heisman in the last 10 years, though, was Alabama’s Mark Ingram back in 2010.
