ESPN Debates Marcus Mariota’s Place in History

ESPN College Football Live already has boots on the ground in Dallas in preparation for next Monday night’s National Championship Game.

Yesterday, the crew debated Marcus Mariota‘s legacy as potentially the greatest quarterback, not just in Oregon history, not just in Pac-12 history but in the history of college football. Here is a video of their discussion. Shocked with his name being mentioned among the all-time greats? Don’t be. Mariota boasts a 172.37 QBR (so far), which is second all time to Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford. He has thrown an eye-popping 103 touchdown passes to go with 29 rushing scores. Possibly most remarkable: 13 career interceptions.

Where do you think Mariota ranks among the all-time greats? Does he need to win on Monday night to solidify his prestigious ranking?
