Here we are midway through the college football season and the rumblings have begun: Who's the favorite to take home the most illustrious College Football award? Will this be the second consecutive year where a non-Quarterback wins the Heisman? Who are the dark horse candidates?

Alabama Quarterback, Bryce Young

Alabama sophomore quarterback Bryce Young is looking to become the third Heisman Trophy winner out of Bama since 2015 (Derrick Henry 2015, Devonta Smith 2021). Young has played nothing short of incredible thus far. Through six games, Young has passed for over 2,000 yards, a staggering 24 touchdown passes to only three interceptions. Additionally, Young ranks top ten in completions (10th), completion percentage(8th), passing yards (7th), passing touchdowns (3rd), and passing efficiency (4th). Most important, Young's impact goes deeper than the stat-sheet. He commands the offense, doesn't put the ball in harm's way, and capitalizes on opponents' mistakes. On top of that, the Crimson Tide are #3 in the AP Poll with a 5-1 record. Bryce Young is undoubtedly the Heisman favorite right now.
