Tracking the Candidates
Sept. 25, 2018
Alabama is averaging nearly 54 points a game and Tagovailoa is averaging 284 yards of total offense through four games. The Alabama offense unveiled yet another option for Tagovailoa against Texas A&M, getting tight ends Hale Hentges and Irv Smith Jr. involved down the middle of the field.
Haskins was nearly flawless in the win over Tulane, starting with nine consecutive completions and finishing 21-of-24 for 304 yards and five touchdowns, all in the first half. This game felt like the perfect tuneup for Penn State and a showdown with its all-star QB, Trace McSorley.
Grier and wide receiver David Sills V put on yet another show against Kansas State, connecting for three touchdowns as the Mountaineers torched K-State. Grier tied a career high with five touchdown throws, placing his Heisman campaign firmly back on track after Hurricane Florence wiped out West Virginia's game at NC State last weekend.
Oklahoma needed overtime to stave off Army in a game kept mostly out of Murray's hands. Army's offense had to ball for 44 minutes, 41 seconds of the game to OU's 15:19. In that time, though, Murray did complete 73.3 percent of his passes and accounted for four touchdowns.
