Somehow, we are down to the final three weeks of the college football season already! It is certainly a good time to visit the Heisman race as it stands currently. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the Heisman top five through 11 weeks.
Heisman Top Five
5) Jonathan Taylor – Running Back – Wisconsin
Jonathan Taylor gets the nod for the fifth spot, despite the presence of several other worthy candidates. He leads the country in rushing yards as well as yards per game. Certainly, he is relied upon as the workhorse back for Wisconsin.
The numbers: 228 carries 1,548 yards 12 TD’s, 7 receptions 52 yards. 154.80 yards per game, 6.79 yards per carry
4) Dwayne Haskins – Quarterback – Ohio State
Without a doubt, Dwayne Haskins is putting up stellar numbers for the Buckeyes this year. Obviously, one of his main weaknesses is not being able to handle pressure thrown his way. Regardless, his overall numbers for the season are impressive.
The numbers: 68.9 percent 3,280 yards 33 TD’s 6 Int’s, 34 yards 1 TD rushing. 328 yards per game, 8.5 yards per attempt, 165.38 rating
3) Will Grier – Quarterback – West Virginia
Overall, Will Grier is having a fabulous season, leading West Virginia to an 8-1 record thus far. Grier has been fantastic as of late especially. It will be hard for him to break into the top two, however, it is possible as he has to face Oklahoma this year and potentially a Big 12 title game.
The numbers: 69 percent 2,961 yards 31 TD’s 8 Int’s, 1 rushing TD. 329 yards per game, 9.9 yards per attempt, 180.68 rating
2) Tua Tagovailoa – Quarterback – Alabama
Obviously, it is extremely hard NOT to have Tua Tagovailoa at number one in many ways. Of course, Tua is having a splendidly efficient season. Imagine the numbers that he would have accumulated, had he played full games for the majority of the year.
The numbers: 67.9 percent 2,525 yards 28 TD’s 2 Int’s, 37 carries 148 yards 3 TD’s. 252.5 yards per game, 11.7 yards per attempt, 207.68 rating
1) Kyler Murray – Quarterback – Oklahoma
Certainly, Kyler Murray is the most exciting player in college football. Clearly, Murray’s uniquely accurate arm combined with his dynamic legs make him a threat against any opponent. After another great game against Oklahoma State, he increased his completion percentage as well as his yards per game.
The numbers: 70.9 percent 3,038 yards 32 TD’s 5 Int’s, 96 carries 640 yards 7 TD’s. 303.8 yards per game, 12.3 yards per attempt, 212.87 rating
