Analyzing the Heisman winners of the past, they all have one key similarity, having a Heisman moment.
Whether it’s Johnny Lujack’s game against Navy or Cam Newton’s big run against LSU, all Heisman winners spanning from the 1930s to the present day all have had a Heisman moment.
On November 20, 2021, CJ Stroud had his Heisman moment.
Throughout the course of the 2021 College Football Season, many big names from all around the country have emerged as Heisman favorites. From the deep waters of Mississippi where Matt Corral made his case heard to all the way up north where Kenneth Walker III leaped into the frontrunner spot for a brief moment in time.
However, it is CJ Stroud, a 20-year-old kid from California, that has emerged and is now the bookie's favorite for Heisman after his Heisman moment.
In a highly anticipated matchup against the number 7 Michigan State, whose star man Kenneth Walker III has put together a fantastic season, CJ Stroud shined.
Stroud was 29 for 31 and threw for 393 yards and 6 touchdowns.
All in the first half.
Ohio State, led by the Heisman level play of Stroud, made Michigan State look like a JV team.
In the first half, Ohio State’s lightning-fast offense had 5 scoring drives that were less than 3 minutes long and only had two negative plays (one false start and one 8 yard sack).
Ohio State has leapfrogged from number 4 to number 2 in the AP Poll, and deservingly so.
Stroud’s Heisman moment will live on forever in Ohio State Buckeyes history as one of if not, the most dominant one-half performances of all-time.
Ohio State now has another tough test on their hands, another top-of-the-country battle against number 6 Michigan. The Wolverines, who lost to Michigan State in one of the games of the year, will have their hands full with the amazing play of CJ Stroud.
