Case Keenum could have been a Heisman candidate, and could have shattered several NCAA records. Instead, he'll spend his final season as a college football player recovering from an ACL injury.
ESPN's Joe Schad tweets that Houston has announced Keenum is out for the year after tearing his ACL against UCLA. It's a terrible break for both Keenum, who had left Houston's game last week against UTEP with a concussion, and for the Cougars, who lost both Keenum and his backup, Cotton Turner for the season in one night. (Turner suffered a fractured clavicle.)
Keenum, largely considered a product of Houston's spread offense, would have had a hard time making a run at the NFL even if his numbers had merited Heisman consideration this year. It's very possible that most of America has seen the last of Case Keenum on a football field.
