On Saturday, we will have the 2022 Heisman Memorial Trophy presentation.
The reigning Heisman winner will not maintain his crown.
Bryce Young, a junior quarterback for Alabama, did not make the ballot for Heisman finalist. Stetson Bennett (Georgia), Caleb Williams (USC Trojans), Max Duggan (TCU), and C.J. Stroud (Ohio State) are heading to New York City. Young turned in a good season despite facing adversity. He battled through a sprained shoulder, endured suspect play-calling from Bill O’Brien, pushed through dropped passes by wide receivers, and had to make magic happen with his arm to pull the Crimson Tide to victories.
He totaled 31 touchdowns (four rushing scores) to five interceptions and recorded four 300+ yard passing performances.
Young had eight games with 2+ passing touchdowns. He is second all-time in school history for passing yards (8,035) behind former Tide quarterback AJ McCarron (9,019). If he plays in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, Young would need three touchdown passes to surpass McCarron (77) for second all-time in history. He sits at No. 3 with 75 scoring tosses behind McCarron and Tua Tagovailoa (87). In a recent poll for Touchdown Alabama Magazine, Tide fans felt Young should have been a Heisman finalist.
Should Bryce Young have been on the Heisman ballot this year?

If we didn’t have him, we would have lost 4-5 games. Based on what he’s done, absolutely
