On Saturday night, with all of the games done until bowl season, the college football world turned its attention to New York City where we celebrated the seasons — and fashion choices — of four of the best players in the country, Ohio State alum and LSU Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow, current Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields, Alabama Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts, and OSU defensive end (yes, defensive players are technically eligible) Chase Young.

As was expected, Ohio State graduate Burrow was named the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner. Burrow will lead the top-ranked Tigers into the College Football Playoff with a 4,715 yards and 48 touchdowns passing this season and a slew of SEC records. He collected a dominating 2,608 points, including 841 of the 891 first-place votes.

Hurts finished a distant second with 762 points (and 12 first-place votes), while Fields was a close-third with 747 points, and Young had 643 points and 20 first-place votes.

Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor finished fifth with 189 points, and Ohio State’s J.K. Dobbins was sixth with 114 points.

However, he did not win the fashion game on Saturday night, that honor belonged to the first offensive and defensive teammates ever to Heisman Finalists, Fields and Young.
