A former Buckeye quarterback won this year's Heisman Trophy, and he thinks the current Buckeye quarterback will win it next year.
After winning this year's award, Joe Burrow told the media that he thinks Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields will return to New York next year and win the 2020 Heisman Trophy.

Fields finished third in this year's voting, behind only Burrow and Jalen Hurts of Oklahoma, and is likely the only member of the top-six returning to school next season, with all the others eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft.
Fields is also the betting favorite to win next year's trophy, according to Sportsline, with +250 odds compared to Trevor Lawrence's +300 odds.
