It finally happened. LSU quarterback Joe Burrow has been named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. He joins the other finalists: Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts, and Ohio State defensive end Chase Young, all vying for the title.
Burrow has thrown the ball for 4,715 yards this season and for 48 touchdowns. He is looking to be the second Heisman Trophy winner in LSU history. The first was the late Billy Cannon back in 1959.
Burrow has already won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Burrow is the first LSU quarterback to ever win that award, given to the top senior or fourth-year junior quarterback playing college football.
