ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum revealed this morning who he voted for in the 2018 Heisman Trophy race.It’s not too surprising.Finebaum revealed during his radio show appearance on WJOX that he voted for Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, but it was a close decision.Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray ended up winning the award, with Tagovailoa finishing in second.“It’s pretty amazing if I would have told you four weeks ago that Tua wouldn’t win the Heisman, but that’s how it went,” Finebaum said.Finebaum thinks that Murray beating out Tagovailoa for the award could give Alabama an extra edge against Oklahoma.“You look for edges and I think it is for Alabama,” Finebaum said. “You could see some of the reaction from some of the players, Damien Harris namely, and you could tell they were angry. Exactly how much that matters, I don’t know, but it counters the narrative that Alabama is a two-touchdown favorite and should walk away from this. As far as Tua, I think his health is more important than whether he’s upset about it. He didn’t look all that upset, but I’ve never seen him look upset about anything. I think that’s demeanor. I don’t think it’s going to be that big of a deal.”Alabama and Oklahoma are set to play in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 29.
