WATCH: Ohio State shares hilarious fake attack ad targeting Tua Tagovailoa ahead of Heisman ceremony
It’s all but a foregone conclusion that either Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa or Oklahoma signal caller Kyler Murray will take home the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night. But that hasn’t stopped Ohio State to make a late push for Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
In their Haskins Heisman campaign, the Buckeyes apparently have no qualms about running a “dirty” campaign. Ohio State released an attack ad, which is actually a parody of a U.S. political campaign, on Tagovailoa.
Check it out:
We know that Tua Tagovailoa is incredibly talented, but he has a secret and America and the Heisman committee deserves to know THE TRUTH* 🇺🇸

He hasn’t received nearly as much attention as Tagovailoa or Murray, but Haskins had a fantastic season. Haskins led the country with 4,580 yards, posting an average of 9.2 yards per attempt. He also had 47 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.
Against Michigan, who had the No. 1 defense in the nation prior to Week 13, Haskins recorded 396 passing yards and six touchdowns. Then he threw for 499 yards and five more scores in the Big Ten Championship Game against Northwestern.
