The Jabrill Peppers Heisman campaign isn’t slowing down. Even though Michigan is coming off a bye week, the support isn’t shrinking.
Count former Minnesota coach Glen Mason as a believer. The Big Ten Network analyst, during a “Fact or Fiction” segment, said it’s a “fact” the do-it-all Peppers will win the Heisman Trophy.
Mason gave two reasons for his thinking: Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh will help make it happen and the road game at Ohio State is a perfect opportunity to shine.
“He’s going to win it because Harbaugh is really caught up in this thing,” Mason said. “Harbaugh is going to play to it, he’s going to build those stats, and Jabrill Peppers is going to have a monster game against Ohio State and win the Heisman Trophy — don’t forget it.”
Dave Wannstedt disagreed with Mason. Though he said he considered Peppers a dark-horse candidate in the preseason, he doesn’t think Peppers will win it.
The Nov. 26 Michigan-Ohio State game can’t get here soon enough.
