1. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Last Game: 20-28, 290 passing yards, 4 TDs & 1 INT in win at Duke.
Outlook: Luck is good. Really good. He’s the consensus frontrunner for the Heisman. There is no debate right now, so simmer down Robert Griffin fans. Nevertheless, anything less than a Pac-12 championship and Luck’s Heisman candidacy is in jeopardy.
2. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
Last Game: 26 carries, 111 rushing yards, & 2 TDs in win at No. 23 Penn State.
Outlook: Alabama gave Richardson the rock often and he ran like a bull. Simply put, he looked like a man amongst boys Saturday against Penn State. Joe Paterno’s defense just wore down as the game proceeded. Richardson's five TDs on the year is a good sign for those in his camp. He’ll need at least 20 TDs in order to knock off a QB. So far so good.
3. Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma
Last Game: 35-47, 375 passing yards & 1 TD in win vs. Tulsa.
Outlook: Playing QB for the No. 1 ranked team in the country has several perks. Of course, there are exceptions, but for the most part, you’re in the Heisman race if you’re in the national title picture. Next week, Jones leads his No. 1 ranked Sooners into Tallahassee for a showdown with Florida State, who is looking to return to national prominence. Get ready for a doozy.
4. Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State
Last Game: 28-34, 261 passing yards, 3 TDs, & 1 INT in win at Georgia.
Outlook: The Broncos’ big week one win over Georgia has some propelling Moore to the top of their Heisman list. If only it were that easy. The big picture remains foggy for Boise State's star QB. First, the Broncos have to go unbeaten because Moore won't win if they lose one game. Frankly, in my assessment, Boise State needs to play in the national title in order to put Moore over the top. Big win two weeks ago, but many variables remain.
5. Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
Last Game: 21-27, 359 passing yards & 5 TDs in win vs. TCU.
Outlook: The most exciting college game of opening week was Griffin’s Baylor Bears taking on TCU. At home, this game was an opportunity for the Bears to make a statement. Boy did they deliver. The man doing the delivering was Griffin, who was dominating from start to finish. He displayed accuracy that surprised even those who’ve been following the Heisman contender. With a suspect defense, it's looking like a fun ride in Waco this year.
6. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Last Game: 27 carries, 176 rushing yards & 1 TD in win at Georgia.
Outlook: I hope that everybody got a chance to see South Carolina take on Georgia. This game at it all. It had offense. It had defense. It had special teams. It even had three consecutive timeouts taken in a bizarre sequence. Nonetheless, Lattimore stole the show, as he got better as the game went on. That's what great RBs do and South Carolina doesn't win this game without him. I’m forecasting such major production from the sophomore back that South Carolina was my against the grain national title pick. Things appear good as South Carolina enters a manageable stretch of games.
7. Denard Robinson, QB, Michigan
Last Game: 11-24, 338 passing yards, 108 rushing yards, 5 TDs (1 rushing), & 3 INTs in win vs. Notre Dame.
Outlook: Admittedly, Michigan’s not going to run the table and they aren’t competing in the Big Ten. However, Robinson’s fourth quarter performance against Notre Dame is exactly what the Heisman is all about. In fact, that game is what college football is all about. The Michigan standout led the Wolverines to 28 fourth quarter points, throwing for a career high 338 yards and four TDs. Three of those TDs came in the fourth quarter, including the game winner with two seconds left. He deserves any early season Heisman recognition he’s getting.

Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
LaMichael James, RB, Oregon
