Heisman Player of the Week: Marqise Lee of USC

On Saturday against Arizona, Lee had one of the best games you’ll ever see by a wide receiver. The sophomore superstar caught 16 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns and tallied 123 yards on three kickoff returns (including a 72-yarder that set up a late Trojans score). He had 469 all purpose yards, not far off from the school record of 513 set by Reggie Bush back in 2005.

For this, he is our Heisman Player of the Week.

Alas for Lee, it was all for naught as his team lost, 39-36, to the Wildcats. But it was his heroics that kept USC in it in the first place. As a result, his name is starting to get bandied about in the Heisman conversation.

The way I see it, he may not make it to New York, but he might just win his school’s first Biletnikoff Award.
