We will also take a look at who wins the National Championship and the 2019 Heisman winner. Will the Heisman winner be another player from Oklahoma like it was the past two seasons (Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray) or is it Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa to take?
Let’s first start with the Conference Championship:
Washington (10-2) versus Utah (9-3)
BIG TEN Championship:
Michigan (10-2) versus Iowa (9-3)
Big XII Championship:
Oklahoma (11-1) versus Texas (10-2)
Alabama (11-1) vs. Georgia (11-1)
Clemson (12-0) vs. Miami (8-4)
Now that we know all the conference champions, let’s see how makes the playoffs and why?
College Football Playoffs:
1. Clemson versus 4. Alabama
2. Georgia versus 3. Michigan
It’s clear that Clemson, Alabama, and Georgia are likely the top three teams in the nation and if they do as predicted, they will easily make it to the playoffs regardless of what happens in their conference championship.
But Michigan will surprise a lot of folks, coach Harbaugh has a lot of pressure on him this year to actually do something. As you read in the Big Ten, Ohio State has a new QB, new coach, and new system which helped Harbaugh sneak in a win in the season finale to get to the championship game.
But it wasn’t until Oklahoma’s loss to Texas in their conference championship that Michigan made it. Kind of how we saw things play out last year between the two conferences.
But how will Michigan fair in the game against Georgia? We’ll talk about that in the National Championship section below. But first, let’s see how will win the 2019 Heisman trophy.
Heisman Trophy Winner:
Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
Heisman Trophy Runner-Up:
Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
Heisman Trophy Third Place:
Sam Ehlinger, QB, Texas
Although, Ehlinger and Texas didn’t make the playoffs, he continuously puts up huge numbers including the most passing touchdowns in the season. But Tua and Lawrence are the best two QBs on the best two teams, and there’s no arguing that they deserve to be the winners.
Tua wins the Heisman, but will he revenge his loss to Clemson a year ago with another win in round 5 of their playoff meeting? Let’s find out who makes it to the National Championship!
