Опубликовано: 10 сент. 2019 г. Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated is fresh from a weekend in Austin. He has a lot to break down, including a new offense, an aggressive quarterback , and more. He starts by responding to the fact that LSU might have a legitimate Heisman quarterback .

This weekend gives us No. 1 LSU vs. No. 2 Alabama – likely the biggest game of the regular season and one of the biggest in recent memory. As we’ve written in the past, the game will have ramifications on the SEC West, SEC Championship, College Football Playoff and the Heisman Trophy.

It makes you wonder: What happens when two Heisman Trophy frontrunners face off?

Since the 2000 college football season, there have been 22 games played in the regular season or in a conference championship game where the Heisman Trophy winner’s team has played an opponent that had at least one player who also finished in the top 10 of Heisman voting that season.

First quarter . The alabama - lsu megagame, reimagined. Eight years ago, the Tigers and Crimson Neither school has ever had a quarterback win the Heisman Trophy, but both have prime candidates at that Across 88 meetings, the losing team only once has scored more than 28 points.

The Heisman Trophy winner’s team went 15-7 in those games and in two of the seven losses, the opposing team’s top-10 Heisman finisher was a defensive player, which deserves to be noted because the defensive player’s team winning wouldn’t necessarily give him a leg up in the Heisman race as it might if he was a Heisman-contending quarterback.

Eight of those 22 games featured two quarterbacks who finished in the top 10 of Heisman voting and the Heisman winner’s team went 5-3 in those games, which are listed below.

Those records tell us that in spite of the potential narrative that some might craft this week that the winning team’s quarterback will have also essentially clinched the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, history tells us that’s not necessarily true.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa returns to practice in limited capacity

  Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa returns to practice in limited capacity Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa returned to the practice field in a limited capacity, 10 days after a tightrope procedure on his injured right ankle.TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Injured Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since his tightrope ankle surgery on Oct. 20, though he was severely limited, according to head coach Nick Saban.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is separating himself from the field in the latest Heisman odds. Well, folks, this is all going to come down to the LSU / Alabama game this weekend from the looks of it. It’s wild how he went from not playing at Ohio State to being the Heisman favorite.

Alabama threw up a roadblock in front of Fournette's runaway Heisman campaign Alabama 's front seven consistently manhandled the LSU offensive line and gave a special player nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Adam Griffith gave Alabama a lead it wouldn' t lose late in the first half, drilling a

In each of the three losses listed above – Lamar Jackson and Louisville losing to Clemson, Sam Bradford and Oklahoma losing to Texas, and Carson Palmer and USC losing to Washington State – the eventual Heisman Trophy winner’s team lost a competitive game (by six, 10 and three points, respectively), and he played the winning team’s quarterback to a draw, if not outplayed him.

Look, projecting the Heisman Trophy winner is more of an art than a science.

There aren’t cut and dried rules or principles in determining the Heisman Trophy winner – a non-zero percent of the award is about the narrative of his campaign and the nebulous but know-it-when-you-see-it “Heisman moment” – but it’s not unreasonable to think that Burrow or Tagovailoa’s team could lose a close game while outplaying his quarterback counterpart, keeping him in the thick of the Heisman race.

Will Tua play against LSU? Nick Saban says there's 'a good chance'

  Will Tua play against LSU? Nick Saban says there's 'a good chance' After expressing confidence in an ESPN.com interview, Alabama's Nick Saban reiterated QB Tua Tagovailoa's status vs. LSU was still to be determined.

Even removing garbage time data, this Alabama defense has been merely very good, not the soul-crushing unit that we typically expect. Despite losing their top six tacklers from last year’s DB corps, they’re fourth in passing marginal efficiency and 39th in passing marginal explosiveness.

Heisman race : tua and the tagalongs. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (13) tries to get away from Arkansas defender De’Jon Harris in the first half of an His 21 rushes are the fewest for a Meyer starting quarterback in a six-game span since John Brantley was his QB at Florida in 2010.

Maybe the losing team then goes 11-1 and maintains a playoff trajectory. Who knows, maybe the winning team goes on to lose to Georgia in the SEC Championship, damaging the winning team’s quarterback’s Heisman campaign in front of a national TV audience in his final game before Heisman voters finalize their ballots.

Remember a banged-up Tagovailoa completed just 10-of-25 passes for 164 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions against Georgia in the SEC Championship, and he failed to run for a touchdown like he had in three of the previous four games. The Heisman Trophy can potentially be won or lost in early December.

Look, if Burrow or Tagovailoa clearly outplays the other and his team wins on Saturday, then I’ll like his chances of winning the Heisman. But let’s not cast aside the losing team’s quarterback’s Heisman hopes, especially if it’s a close game and his stats in Week 11 are just as good, if not better than the quarterback on the other sideline.

Here are the games in which the Heisman Trophy winner and another top-10 Heisman finisher have played each other since the 2000 season:

Alabama QB Tagovailoa starts against LSU after ankle surgery

a man wearing a helmet: A few weeks ago, Missouri was the surprise team in the SEC that could've upset the balance of power in the East division. That was before Bryant suffered a leg injury against Troy, and losses to Vanderbilt and Kentucky knocked the Tigers out of first place. If they have a chance to get back into the mix, they need to go into Athens and beat Georgia. Bryant, who piloted Clemson to an ACC championship two years ago, has been a mixed bag since that injury. He looked fantastic against Ole Miss (329 yds, TD) but off against Vandy and Kentucky (270 yds, 2 TDs combined), though he did rush for 72 yards against the Commodores. His best games have been where he's been efficient with his arm and productive with his legs. He needs a big game if Mizzou wants to pull off the upset.
