EDITOR'S NOTE: Alabama sports betting is currently prohibited so there are no sports betting apps in Alabama legally offering odds on the Heisman Trophy. Odds from DraftKings Sportsbook, which is available in other states, were used for this article.
Although the College Football Playoff was not Young’s finest moment, how he finished leading up to the Heisman Trophy Ceremony may have ultimately been what won him the nation’s most coveted award.
After back-to-back five-touchdown performances in wins over New Mexico State and ranked Arkansas, Young engineered a 97-yard game-tying drive in a comeback win over Auburn to close the regular season. In the SEC Championship, Young passed for 421 yards and accounted for four total touchdowns as the Crimson Tide handed previously undefeated and eventual national champion Georgia its first loss, 41-24.
Young eclipsed the 300-yard passing mark in 10 of Alabama’s 15 games last season. In six of those contests, Young accounted for at least four total touchdowns.
Young joined former running backs Mark Ingram, Derrick Henry and wide receiver DeVonta Smith, the 2020 recipient, as Alabama players to win the Heisman Trophy. Despite a rich football history, the Crimson Tide never had a Heisman Trophy winner prior to 2009. Young will try to give the Crimson Tide their fifth Heisman in 14 years.
