Bryce Young Makes Appearance in New Heisman House Commercial
Alabama quarterback Bryce Young becomes the first active college player to appear in a Nissan Heisman House commercial, thanks to the NCAA's name, image and likeness rules.
The 45 second commercial starts off with Young being welcomed into the house by Tim Tebow, who immediately informs the Crimson Tide quarterback that he was "the first ever sophomore to win the Heisman."
Following in Tebow's competitive spirit, the rest of the commercial shows past Heisman winners and mascots competing against each other in various activities, including former Alabama running back Derrick Henry against Carson Palmer and USC's Trojan mascot, Kyler Murray against Barry Sanders, former Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith against Robert Griffin III, Henry against Steve Spurrier, and Baker Mayfield and Charlie Ward against Oklahoma State's mascot Pistol Pete.
The commercial ends with Young against Auburn Tigers' mascot, Aubie, thumb wrestling, which if the 2021 Iron Bowl is any indication of how the match went, Young beat Auburn again in a thriller.
During his Heisman winning season last year, Young put up 4,872 passing yards and 47 touchdowns, breaking Alabama's single-season record for both and ranking first in the SEC and second in the nation in both, resulting in him leading the Crimson Tide to a 13-2 record and the national championship game.
Along with becoming the first Alabama quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy, Young racked up many more awards in 2021, including the Maxwell Award, the Davey O'Brien Award, and the Manning Award, as well as being named AP College Football Player of the Year, Sporting News College Football Player of the Year, SEC Offensive Player of the Year and most recently, SEC Male Athlete of the Year.
Young and Alabama begin the 2022 season at Bryant Denny Stadium on Saturday, September 3, 2022, against Utah State. The game will kick-off at 6:30 p.m. CT and will air on the SEC Network.
