Robert Griffin III Starts Heisman Campaign With Upset Over TCU

Updated: September 3, 2011


Robert Griffin III, a dark horse in the 2012 draft for a lot of people, showed off his talent running the a ball, throwing the ball, AND catching the ball in a upset over 14 TCU last night. Grifffin’s night was highlighted by several very accurate passes for touchdowns, as his Baylor team fought off the comeback of the TCU Frogs.

In the end, it was Griffin redeeming himself with a reception on a trick play after fumbling on the previous drive to convert a first down for what would end up being the game winning field goal. After what Griffin did he is the first name to stamp his name on the Heisman bandwagon.

Griffin went 21 of 27 attempts for 359 yards and 5 touchdowns. Not shabby. I still like Ryan Tannehill as my dark horse first round QB, but Griffin is going to keep making it hard to keep him out the first round.
