Rough week for Heisman hopefuls
Syndication: The Columbus Dispatch
Alabama quarterback Bryce Young and Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud took a step backward in Week 13, with Young barely leading the Crimson Tide to an Iron Bowl win over Auburn and Stroud falling short against Michigan in a game that effectively determined the Buckeyes’ College Football Playoff fate.
Young and Stroud did not play horribly over the weekend and are still the two favorites to win this year’s Heisman Trophy, but the gap between the two of them and the rest of the field might be a bit smaller after Week 13.
