Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson was on the Heisman Trophy radar before Week 10, but was certainly not in the same air space as TCU’s Trevone Boykin or LSU’s Leonard Fournette. His ascension before the stretch run, however, emphasizes the importance of November over September and October when it comes to college football’s top individual award.
Watson and Alabama running back Derrick Henry are two of the leading beneficiaries of Heisman front-runners Fournette and Boykin struggling this past Saturday. The first failure of the two longtime favorites in high-profile games caused a major upheaval in the CFB Huddle Heisman Top 10, forecasting the outlook based on media reaction and popular sentiment.
Projecting a final pool of invitees to the award ceremony next month in New York is a fool’s errand at present. Any of the 10 players to featured have a worthy case, and more chaos akin to Week 10 is sure to come.
