Quinn Ewers and Carson Beck Could Contend for the Heisman Trophy in 2024

Starting from the 2024 season, the Texas Longhorns will be changing their travel destinations, no longer heading to Lubbock or Stillwater. Instead, they will be making trips to Gainesville and eventually Athens, marking their entry into the SEC following the recent wave of conference realignment initiated by Texas and Oklahoma. As part of their introduction to the SEC, the Longhorns are set to face the Georgia Bulldogs, a team projected to be in the top three nationally, just a week after playing against Oklahoma. ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg sees this matchup as having significant Heisman implications, especially with the spotlight on the quarterbacks – Texas’ Quinn Ewers, starting for his third season, and Georgia’s Carson Beck, in his second year as a starter. Both quarterbacks are recognized among the best in the country and are expected to play a key role in the Heisman race. Rittenberg notes that Texas appears well-prepared for their SEC entry, having reached their first College Football Playoff, defeating Alabama on the road last year, and coming close to victory against the Tide in 2022 at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium. The Beck-Ewers quarterback duel is anticipated to carry implications for the Heisman Trophy. Beyond the Heisman race, the outcome of this game could significantly influence the SEC standings and, more crucially, the College Football Playoff picture. With the playoff expanding to 12 teams, securing a conference title becomes increasingly vital – winning guarantees automatic entry, while falling short means teams must compete for an at-large bid. Texas fans are optimistic about Ewers’ continued improvement, as he aims to build on the progress he has shown from his first to second year.
