Ranking The Big Ten Heisman Candidates After Week Four


The Big Ten has some outstanding history when it comes to the Heisman Trophy. From Archie Griffin being the only two time winner to Charles Woodson being the only predominately defensive player to ever win the award, the Big Ten has had no shortage of Heisman worthy players. This year is no different. We’ll take a weekly look at which Big Ten star has the best chance to take home the most recognizable trophy in all of sports.

Each week we’ll take a look at the Heisman front-runners from the Big Ten. Who’s stock is rising, who’s falling, and what conference star has the best chance to be named the best player in college football?

No. 4 – Trace McSorely – Penn State, QB

What You Need To Know

Trace McSorley is the unquestioned leader of the Nittany Lions football team. Many experts had McSorley on their short list of Heisman candidates coming into the 2018 season. Thus far in the season, the Penn State quarterback has been steady, but nothing spectacular.

McSorley put up a fair numbers this past Friday night in a matchup with the Illini in Champaign.

A much tougher test awaits this Saturday as the Nits welcome the No. 4 Buckeyes to town. He has a great chance to get back in the forefront of the minds of voters.
