Paul Finebaum Makes His Heisman Trophy Selection
Paul Finebaum knows where his vote for college football’s highest honor will be cast.
Finebaum has had Alabama quarterback Bryce Young as his favorite for a while, and his performance against Georgia cemented his position.
On Sunday morning, he appeared on SportsCenter to explain his reasoning.
Finebaum stated on SportsCenter, “It was masterful.”
“He had a Heisman moment a week before (against Auburn), but he didn’t have a Heisman game.”
For Bryce Young, this was unmistakably a Rembrandt painting.
I don’t want to irritate my bosses, who are planning to promote the Heisman Trophy next week, but it’s out.
It’s all over now.
The Heisman Trophy has been awarded to Bryce Young.”
Young threw for 421 yards and three touchdowns against the Bulldogs.
He also did the majority of the work without top receiver John Metchie, who was forced to leave the game in the first half due to a knee injury.
Young had driven the Crimson Tide 99 yards for the game-tying touchdown the week before, but they lost in overtime to the Auburn Tigers.
He threw 43 touchdown passes and only four interceptions during the regular season.
On December, he’ll get another chance to boost his totals.
In one of the CFP semifinals, Alabama will face Cincinnatti on December 31.
