Week 7 was easily the craziest weekend of college football we've seen all year and Alabama quarterback and current Heisman-leader Tua Tagovailoa wasn't spared any special treatment from the football gods either. 


I mean, Tagovailoa actually looked mortal for the first time all season after suffering a knee sprain that took him out of Alabama's 39-10 win over Missouri. And all it takes is one bad week when there's an undefeated Notre Dame in town lead by new quarterback Ian Book. 


Especially when he comes in for Brandon Wimbish and totally revives an otherwise dead Fighting Irish offense at record efficiency. 

Despite having started only four games, Book went 26-for-32 in a 19-14 victory over Pittsburgh to boost his season-long completion percentage to north of 75 percent. 


If there's one storyline that Heisman poll voters and the rest of college football fans will fall head over heels for enough so that Tua can be dethroned as the Heisman favorite, it's undoubtedly a Notre Dame quarterback leading the Irish to an undefeated season and their first College Football Playoff. 


They're suckers for that kind of stuff.
