Buckeye loyalty be damned … Ohio State legend Eddie George says LSU’s Joe Burrow is the front-runner to win the Heisman trophy on Saturday … despite 2 OSU finalists.
TMZ Sports spoke with the 1995 Heisman winner about the 4 finalists — Burrow, Jalen Hurts, Chase Young and Justin Fields — and while he won’t tell us who he voted for, he thinks the Tigers gunslinger will take home the hardware.
“They’re all worthy candidates,” George tells us … “It’s tough for me to say who’s gonna take it. It might be Joe Burrow might be the leader. But this thing has always been surprising.
“If I was a guessing man, I would think it would probably be the quarterback at LSU.”
We also asked which candidate has the best team — considering each finalist will be competing in the College Football Playoff … and Baton Rouge is gonna love his response!!
