Overheard On Twitter: Kirk Herbstreit Says Ohio State-Penn State Is A Heisman Game-Changer
Standout Penn State running back Saquon Barkley has topped Heisman predictions all season, and college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit got a front row seat to the show after ESPN College GameDay last week.
During Saturday’s 42-13 White Out win under the Beaver Stadium lights, Barkley scored three touchdowns — two rushing and one receiving — with a total of 108 rushing yards and 53 receiving yards through the game.
So who does Herbstreit see taking home the trophy in New York? He took to Twitter today to share his thoughts on the Heisman race after fans tweeted questions to him.
With a good performance and a Penn State win this weekend, Herbstreit’s betting on Barkley.
But what about Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett, who’s stayed in the top ten candidates on the ESPN Experts’ Poll? Herbstreit says he could be back in the race pending an Ohio State win and a great performance this weekend.
Does JT Barrett get back into the Heisman race with a win and stellar performance?
