1. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Last Week: Idle
Outlook: Get use to Luck in this position for a while. Stanford should win their next four before traveling to Southern California to take on the Trojans. Frankly, USC has not played well, so Stanford could be looking at a 9-0 start before they host Oregon in November. Simply put, Luck’s winning the Heisman if he plays well and Stanford keeps winning.
2. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
Last Game: 211 total yards & 1 TD in win vs. No. 14 Arkansas.
Outlook: Richardson is the most overlooked Heisman candidate, which is surprising because he plays on a marquee team. His nine total TDs in four games stands out, though it is unrealistic to expect him to keep up that pace. However, if he approaches 25 total scores, he has the best chance to unseat Luck, especially if Alabama is No. 1 in the country.
3. Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State
Last Game: 279 yards & 4 TDs in win vs. Tulsa.
Outlook: I know I’ve written this the last few weeks, but Boise State needs to run the table for Moore to win the Heisman. In fact, they may need to break through and play for the BCS national championship. End of story. Yes, Moore’s off to a great start, but it’s a long season.
4. Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
Last Game: 389 total yards & 6 TDs (1 rushing) in win vs. Rice.
Outlook: Admittedly, it’s hard not to be taken aback while examining Griffin’s numbers. He’s thrown 13 TDs in only three games, which is an average of more than four a game. That’s not his most impressive stat, though. He’s thrown only 12 incomplete passes all season. He has more TDs than incomplete passes. All stat junkies should let that sink in because that’s the stat of the year. I can’t begin to explain how impressive that is. Griffin’s in this race until the very end.
5. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Last Game: 150 total yards & 1 TD in win vs. Vanderbilt.
Outlook: Pro scouts have to love what they’re seeing from Lattimore. He’s brings a rare combination of size and explosiveness to the table. His ability to change direction is downright impressive for his size. He’s a future first-round pick, so take notice fantasy players in dynasty leagues.
6. Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma
Last Game: 448 yards, 3 TDs, & 2 INTs in win vs. Missouri.
Outlook: Jones’ Heisman candidacy reminds me of Colt McCoy’s run at the award in 09. That year, McCoy threw nine INTs in his first nine games, including an INT in his first seven games to start the year. Jones has four INTs in just three games so far this season. It’s early, but turnovers could cost him in the end.
7. Denard Robinson, QB, Michigan
Last Game: 293 total yards, 5 TDs (2 rushing), & 2 INTs in win vs. San Diego State.
Outlook: Like Jones, Robinson’s turnovers are unacceptable for a Heisman candidate. Nevertheless, his team got a victory over the better than advertised San Diego State Aztecs. In fact, the Aztecs are likely the toughest remaining opponent on Boise State’s schedule, so that was a big win for the Wolverines. Robinson now enters the make or break part of his Heisman candidacy, as Michigan begins Big Ten play next week.
