1. Louisville QB Lamar Jackson
Jackson was at it again accounting for 7 touchdowns and more than 400 yards total offense, in a 52-7 win over Boston College. Jackson is way out in front in the race for the Heisman and barring a total collapse the trophy looks to be headed to Louisville.
2. Clemson QB Deshaun Watson
Watson ran for a score and dissected the Syracuse secondary for 169 yards and two touchdowns on 13-of-16 passing prior to halftime. He got derailed by an injured shoulder early in the second half.
3. Washington QB Jake Browning
Browning I feel is the top NFL prospect out of all the quarterbacks in the nation. He is scary accurate and was again this past weekend throwing 6 touchdown passes. The schedule gives him a chance to pull this out in the last few weeks as the Huskies play USC and Washington State two of the hottest teams in the nation.
4. Michigan LB Jabrill Peppers
Peppers stats this week, five tackles, a stop for loss, two carries for 14 yards and a 14-yard return. Still, this is arguably the most complete football player in the country, and the voters are already aware of it.
5. Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield
He has thrown at least four touchdown passes in four straight games. No quarterback in the country is hotter. Mayfield looks like he will surpass last year’s numbers when he finished fourth in the Heisman voting.
6. Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett
Just when you think Barrett has eliminated himself from Heisman contention he completed 26-of-38 for 290 yards, four touchdowns, and no picks. Nebraska was ranked number 10 at the time of the game, and with a battle with Michigan looming maybe he can get himself back into the conversation?
7. San Diego St RB Donnell Pumphrey
Still, the leading rusher in the nation ran for 112 yards in the Aztec’s blowout of Hawaii.
8. Texas RB D’Onta Foreman
Foreman ambushed Texas Tech for 341 yards and three touchdowns on 33 carries. The tenth straight game he has rushed for over 100 yards.
