Heisman Finalists: Dwayne Haskins, Kyler Murray and Tua Tagovailoa Stats Comparison

On Saturday, the 2018 Heisman Trophy will be awarded to Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins, Oklahoma's Kyler Murray or Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa. Each player is worthy of their finalist recognition after putting together impressive campaigns for their respective teams.

There are plenty of similarities among the three quarterbacks, starting with the fact each led their team to a conference championship and a New Year's Six bowl. So each player will have at least one more game to add to their statistics but with the Heisman votes already submitted and counted how do these three signal-callers stack up against each other? Some of the numbers may surprise you.
