The 2021 Heisman Trophy will be awarded to either Aidan Hutchinson, Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud, or Kenny Pickett on Saturday night.

Of the 3 quarterbacks that are up for college football’s most prestigious award this year, none came close to the statistical season that Joe Burrow put together in 2019, helping him garner over 90 percent of the vote as he became just the 2nd LSU player to win it. His 60 touchdowns set an FCS record as the Tigers went 15-0 and won the College Football Playoff National Championship in his sole season with the program.

Burrow’s rookie season was cut short by an ACL injury, but despite leading the league in interceptions, he and the Cincinnati Bengals are in the thick of the playoff hunt. Next up is a trip to Denver to face the Broncos on Sunday.
