Why Week 7 gave us the answers we needed about the College Football Playoff’s top contenders

ESPN
The problem with September football is that it skews our perspective. College football is still figuring itself out in September. The comparison points are all hypothetical. September lies. October, however, offers real insight. Was LSU’s offense really ready for a title run? It’s easy enough to think so when Joe...

Can Oklahoma and LSU keep their offenses flying high in Week 7?

ESPN
The campaign for the 2019 Heisman Trophy appeared to be a two-man race heading into the season: last year’s runner-up, Alabama‘s Tua Tagovailoa, versus the golden-boy prototype and reigning national champion, Clemson‘s Trevor Lawrence.

Heisman Watch — Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa show no signs of slowing down

ESPN
Through six weeks, Heisman Watch is shaping up to be a two-man race between Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa. Maybe Joe Burrow, Justin Fields or Jonathan Taylor can sneak in. But that would require Hurts or Tagovailoa to have an off game. And that simply hasn’t happened yet. Throughout the...
