Stats: 19 TDs. 1360 yards. 6.8 yards per carry.
Key part of the best offensive attack in college football. Supreme talent that deserves way more attention than he’s currently getting. That said, the system he plays in will likely be held against him when it’s time to vote.
LB, Notre Dame
Stats: 6 INTs
The face of the best non-SEC defense in the country. Extremely impactful player. If Notre Dame ends up in the National Championship Game, it will be in large part because of him.
Stats: 13 TDs. 1447 yards. 98 receptions.
Without a doubt the nation’s best wide receiver. Makes Matt Barkley look twice as good as he actually is. Deserves a lot more attention than he’s currently getting.
QB, Kansas State
Passing Stats: 12 TDs. 2020 yards. 167.4 Rating. Rushing Stats: 19 TDs. 748 yards.
The best player on arguably the nation’s best team. Not particularly impressive this week against a ho-hum TCU squad, though. Has great stats, but puts them up in the third best college football conference.
QB, Texas A&M
Passing Stats: 18 TDs. 2780 yards. 151.2 Rating. Rushing Stats: 15 TDs. 1014 yards.
After this weekend’s performance, Johnny Football has to be the favorite. Is giving the Heisman to a freshman common practice? No. Should it happen when it’s warranted? Yes.
