2019 Heisman Watch (Week 10)

Where does Ohio State’s Chase Young rank in the Heisman Trophy watch after his dominant performance in the Buckeyes’ win over Wisconsin?


1. Joe Burrow | LSU QB | Senior | Last week: 1

LSU is now the No. 1 team in the country, and Joe Burrow is the team’s leader coming off another strong showing with one touchdown passing and one touchdown rushing against a stingy Auburn defense. The Tigers now have a bye week ahead of the huge No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup at Alabama, but Burrow will clearly be in the driver’s seat for the Heisman Trophy entering November.


Season stats:

78.8% | 2,805 PASS YDS | 30 PASS TD | 4 INT

52 CAR | 125 RUSH YDS | 3 RUSH TD | 2.4 AVG


2. Jalen Hurts | Oklahoma QB | Senior | Last week: 2

Jalen Hurts basically did everything he could to bring Oklahoma back against Kansas State, and he remains in the second spot in the Heisman watch after totaling 491 yards and four touchdowns in the loss—the defense just did not back him up, giving up 48 points to the Wildcats. Hurts is still very much alive in the Heisman race, but the Sooners cannot afford to lose another game.


Season stats:

73.9% | 2,469 PASS YDS | 21 PASS TD | 3 INT

103 CAR | 801 RUSH YDS | 13 RUSH TD | 7.8 AVG


3. Tua Tagovailoa | Alabama QB | Junior | Last week: 3

After missing one game with his ankle injury, Tua Tagovailoa will almost certainly need to return for the huge November 9 matchup against LSU to have a shot at the Heisman. But he’s still very much alive if he can get on the field and help lead the Crimson Tide to victory. Tua will take this extra week to rest up.


Season stats:

74.7% | 2,166 PASS YDS | 27 PASS TD | 2 INT

18 CAR | 30 RUSH YDS | 2 RUSH TD | 1.7 AVG


4. Chase Young | Ohio State | Junior | Last week: NR

Chase Young’s dominant 4.0-sack performance helps puts him squarely in the Heisman Trophy race as a defensive player despite it already being a crowded field on the offensive side of the ball. Young has been nearly unblockable this season, with 13.5 sacks and five forced fumbles in just eight games. If Young continues to perform against top competition, he’ll find himself in New York as a Heisman finalist.

29 TKL | 15.5 TFL | 13.5 SACK | 5 FF


5. Justin Fields | Ohio State QB | Sophomore | Last week: 5

Justin Fields gets leaped by his teammate Chase Young, but he stays slightly ahead of Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor and Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert for the final spot on the list. Fields benefits from playing with a stacked supporting cast including a strong rushing attack led by J.K. Dobbins, but the sophomore quarterback is putting up numbers for one of the top teams in the country.


Season stats:

68.8% | 1,659 PASS YDS | 24 PASS TD | 1 INT

76 CAR | 319 RUSH YDS | 9 RUSH TD | 4.2 AVG
