If the three quarterbacks who arrived in New York as finalists for the Heisman Trophy — Jalen Hurts of Oklahoma, Justin Fields of Ohio State and Joe Burrow of Louisiana State — harbored this dream when they set off for college, the reality came in a different hue.

Burrow transferred last year to LSU from Ohio State, where he was a sparingly used reserve. After finishing strong for the Tigers in 2018, he broke out this season, setting a Southeastern Conference record with 48 touchdown passes and leading top-ranked LSU to its first College Football Playoff appearance. The Tigers will face No. 4 Oklahoma and Hurts on Dec. 28 at the Peach Bowl in Atlanta.
