2. Bo Nix’s performance determines the Heisman
If you ever think about a dream quarterback, what characteristics do you think about? Strong arm, short throw accuracy, makes calls on the fly, can scan the defense, running ability, and born leader.
All these characteristics describe the Ducks’ undisputed best player on the field, Bo Nix.
Since Nix transferred to Oregon from Auburn, he has done nothing more than show that he is the best quarterback in all of college football. This statement has been true since the loss to Washington when Nix led the Ducks to put up numbers that you see in Madden. Nix leads most of all FBS quarterback stats with completion percentage and passing yards. Nix also is second in touchdowns and fourth in completions.
This game has a lot of apprehension about who is the front-runner for the Heisman Trophy. Especially, with having two of the front runners for the award, Nix and Penix Jr. With this game having a heavyweight-bout feel with two studs at quarterbacks, there is one that has revenge in his eyes. Nix is going to show that he is the best quarterback in college football and he has been showing it with the numbers he has put up in November.
Maybe we need to change it to Bovember? In November, Nix threw for 1,569 yards and 16 touchdowns. College football fans should be ready for a show that Nix is going to put on in the bright lights in Vegas.
