After the first game of the season, everyone was ready to hit the panic button on Marvin Harrison Jr. He had just two catches for 18 yards and was shut down completely by Indiana’s defense. How could that possibly happen to the No. 1 receiver in college football?
That panic didn’t last long.
Actually, he rattled off two straight 100-yard games before having a quiet performance in a defensive battle in Week 4 at Notre Dame. He had just three catches for 32 yards.
Since then, he’s had over 100 yards in five out of six games.
Harrison’s most recent performance against Michigan State was a big one as he caught seven passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns, making it look effortless. He now has a touchdown catch in six straight games and two touchdowns in three straight.
Could he become the first receiver to win the Heisman since DeVonta Smith? He’s getting hot at the right time.
