Why McCaffrey Will Win

McCaffrey ended the regular season leaving voters with a “Heisman moment” in the Pac-12 championship. He broke Sanders record for all-purpose yards. McCaffrey is the most versatile of the Heisman candidates with his impact on the rushing, passing and return game. His stat sheet fills the most categories of anyone in the nation.

Why McCaffrey Will Not Win

Henry has triple the amount of rushing touchdowns as McCaffrey does. Henry has had the media momentum for the award for the better part of two months. McCaffrey has received some buzz late, but will it be enough to sway the majority of voters? Stanford games often kickoff at 10:30 p.m. ET which means a lot of the voters do not get to see McCaffrey play as much as Henry and Watson.
