One other interesting call by the conference SIDs…
MOST VALUABLE PLAYER
Dak Prescott, QB, Miss. State
Runner-up: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
TOP HEISMAN CANDIDATE
Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
Runner-up: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
… seems like an incongruity, but really isn’t when you think about it. It’s a judgment that Chubb plays for a team that surrounds him with more talent than Prescott enjoys and is perceived to have a greater upside for success this season than does MSU.
With that in mind, voting Chubb second for league MVP is a helluva compliment. So is naming him the best blocking back in the SEC.
