    Last Word on College Football Heisman Rankings

    It’s never too early to talk about the Heisman Trophy. It’s one of the most coveted awards in collegiate athletics. However, it also comes as one of the most scrutinized as well. Does the award go to the best overall player in College Football? Does it go to the best player on the best team? Or, is it simply the most valuable player? Let’s take a look at our inaugural Last Word on College Football Heisman Rankings.

    Top Five Candidates

    1. Saquon Barkley

    RB | Penn State                                               Next Game: 9/30 vs Indiana

    Barkley leads our LWOS Heisman rankings after a dominating performance against Iowa. He had his best overall game in 2017 as he topped 300 total yards from scrimmage in the last second victory.

    WEEK 4 AT IOWA

    RUSHING

    2. Baker Mayfield

    QB | Oklahoma                                         Next Game: 10/07 vs Iowa State

    Mayfield didn’t do anything to hurt his chances, he was just overshadowed by Barkley. Perhaps the most impressive stat for Mayfield is that he still has yet to throw an interception in his first four games.

    WEEK 4 AT BAYLOR

    PASSING

    YDS TD INT CMP% QBR

    3. Bryce Love

    RB | Stanford                                         Next Game: 9/30 vs Arizona State

    Love has the tough challenge of playing at times when there is not quite as many eyes on his games. Nevertheless, he had arguably the best performance of the weekend.

    WEEK 4 VS UCLA
    RUSHING
    YDS TD YPC

    4. Lamar Jackson

    louisville-cardinals-logo

    QB | Louisville                                         Next Game: 9/30 vs Murray State

    The problem for a returning Heisman winner is that you have to do something off the charts to repeat. He didn’t do anything special last week against Kent State and may not have an opportunity for a Heisman moment, as Louisville doesn’t face another ranked opponent during the regular season.

    WEEK 4 VS KENT STATE
    PASSING
    YDS TD INT CMP% QBR
    299 2 2 81.8 78.7
     
    RUSHING
    YDS TD YPC
    34 1 4.3
    2017 SEASON
    PASSING
    YDS TD INT CMP% QBR
    1387 10 3 63.1 93.2
     
    RUSHING
    YDS TD YPC
    337 4 5.2

     

    5. Rashaad Penny

    RB | San Diego State                           Next Game: 9/30 vs Northern Illinois

    Mr. Penny suffers from the same challenge that Love does on top of being from a Group of Five team. However, he is becoming a household name very quickly. He’s going to continue to rack up the yards and touchdowns, but the question remains if it will be enough without a marquee match-up.

    WEEK 4 AT AIR FORCE
    RUSHING
    YDS TD YPC
    128 3 6.4
    RECEIVING
    REC YDS YPR TD
    3 18 6.0 0
    2017 SEASON
    RUSHING
    YDS TD YPC
    716 7 7.9
    RECEIVING
    REC YDS YPR TD
    12 87 7.3 1
