In his first year with the Tigers, Shipley leads the team with 678 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns on 131 carries across nine games, averaging 5.2 yards per attempt.
As for Uiagalelei, he entered the 2021 season as a Heisman candidate but of course hasn’t had the type of season many expected, completing 54.7 percent of his passes for 2,059 yards and nine touchdowns with nine interceptions, while also rushing for 304 yards and four scores.
