Trevor Lawrence owns the Heisman Trophy rankings after Week three with one other cruising, spectacular victory. However Spencer Rattler and the SEC and Massive Ten gamers gained’t simply let him stroll away with it.
Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has performed in two Nationwide Championship Video games in as many seasons and has one title to indicate for it. He’s going to be the No. 1 choose within the 2021 NFL Draft. And he’s one of many best quarterbacks faculty soccer has ever seen. The one factor he hasn’t completed up to now is profitable and even severely competing for the Heisman Trophy. He’s properly on his technique to altering that within the 2020 season.
Lawrence was dominant for the second straight week, regardless of taking part in simply over one quarter of motion on Saturday in Week three. However that was anticipated given his prowess and the truth that they have been taking part in The Citadel. What was sudden was what we noticed out of the Massive 12, particularly with the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
Working again Chuba Hubbard and quarterback Spencer Sanders entered the 2020 season as viable dark-horse candidates to play their method into the Heisman combine. And a season-opening contest in opposition to Tulsa appeared like a chief alternative to construct some early hype. As an alternative, Sanders left within the first quarter resulting from damage and Hubbard struggled (27 carries, 94 yards, 1 landing) in a paltry 16-7 win for the Pokes.
Even with the SEC and (now that they’re coming again) the Massive Ten but to start out play, Hubbard doesn’t crack the highest 10 of the early-season Heisman Trophy rankings after that sort of debut. As a operating again in a shortened yr, he wanted to be a monster week-in and week-out and, in opposition to one of many worst groups they’ll face, he did not ship.
Having mentioned that, a number of different gamers submitted sturdy statements about their Heisman candidacy on Saturday. So, whereas the SEC debut on Sept. 26 will probably shake issues up within the high 10 transferring ahead, and the Massive Ten’s return on Oct. 24 will see Justin Fields added to the combination, let’s check out the Heisman Trophy rankings after the motion in Week three.
