Last Word on College Football Heisman Rankings

Is it the running backs this year that could steal the show? With terrific performances from Saquan Barkley and Bryce Love the last couple of weeks this could be the year that a signal caller does not come home with the hardware. There have only been two running backs that have won the trophy with Derrick Henry in 2015 and Mark Ingram in 2009. Great individual plays once again stole the show this weekend. Barkley had a kickoff return for a touchdown in the opening play of the game against Indiana. Also, Love had touchdown runs of 61, 43 and 59 on his way to 301 yards on the ground against Arizona State.

Image result for Penn State

 

 

RB | Penn State                                               Next Game: 10/7 @ Northwestern

RB | Stanford                                        Next Game: 10/07 @ Utah

You run out of superlatives to describe Love’s 2017 season. But, he was electric once again against Arizona State. So much so that he has vaulted to number two in our rankings this week.

louisville-cardinals-logo

QB | Louisville                                         Next Game: 10/05 @ NC State

Jackson only played a half against Murray State on Saturday but that didn’t stop him from putting up big numbers. He had almost 350 yards of total offense in the win.

5. Rashaad Penny

Image result for San Diego State logo

 

 

RB | San Diego State                           Next Game: 10/07 @ UNLV

Penny had a solid performance against Northern Illinois on Saturday. It’s very important for a player like Penny for his team to remain undefeated. As a non power five team, to stay in contention for the Heisman his team must stay in contention for a New Years Six Bowl Game.
