Why Bryce Love Should Have Won The 2017 Heisman Trophy

Updated on December 19, 2017

Let's Compare

Baker Mayfield had a historical season, but Bryce Love is only overlooked because Mayfield is a quarterback. Mayfield has 4,340 passing yards, 41 passing touchdowns, and 5 interceptions thrown, he ran for 310 yards, 5 touchdowns, and fumbled the ball three times. While Bryce Love ran for 1,973 rushing yards, 17 touchdowns, and fumbled the ball twice. While he had 8 receptions for 33 yards and led the NCAA in yards from scrimmage with 2,006. Bryce averaged 8.3 yards per carry, which is second most in the Pac-12 and fourth in NCAA, also being 30th in NCAA history. Bryce only had one game when he rushed for under 100 yards, when he rushed for 69 yards and one touchdown with 16 carries in a loss at Washington State. He also had a game against Arizona State where he ran for 301 yards and 3 touchdowns. Bryce had 5 games in which he either had 200+ rushing yards or 2+ rushing touchdowns, and one game where he had both, the game against Arizona State. Bryce had 7 game where he had 150+ rushing yards and 1+ rushing touchdowns, also in his final six games of the regular season he had 150+ rushing yards and 1+ rushing touchdowns in every game. He also had 3 games where he had 10+ yard per carry, with 180+ rushing yards.

Now Baker Mayfield, Baker played an extra game since the Sooners made the Big 12 championship game and that's where 4 of his touchdowns passing came from. While Bryce didn't play in a bowl game. Now everyone will bring up Baker's game against Oklahoma State now, yeah he had an outstanding game with 598 passing yards but you need to take into account his other stats. He threw two picks and ran for -9 yards. Now Baker had 8 games where he threw for over 300 yards and two games where he threw for 400+, and 9 games where he threw 3 plus touchdowns, and 4 games where he threw for 4+ touchdowns. Although he also had three games where he ran for negative yards. Although, the main reason I believe Bryce shpould have won the Heisman is that putting up those amazing stats as a running back with a lack-luster offensive line is, in my opinion, way harder that putting up the stats Baker Mayfield did with a good offensive line and great receivers, including a 6 foot 6 inch tight end who he passed to all the time. In short, the only reason Baker won the heisman is that the Sooners made the playoffs so Bryce was over looked. Individual awards should not account for team wins, they are individual awards not whoever won the most games.
