1. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Last Week: 169 yards & 2 TDs in win vs. No. 25 Washington.
Outlook: Is there any doubt who the biggest winner from upset Saturday was? The losses of Oklahoma and Wisconsin not only distance Luck from Russell Wilson and Landry Jones, but it also put Stanford in the national title picture. The Cardinals can easily run the table this year and meet either LSU or Alabama in the national championship. I’m excited just thinking about the possibility of Luck facing either one of those two defenses.
2. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
Last Week: 110 total yards and 2 TDs in win vs. Tennessee.
Outlook: This is business as usual for this Heisman report. Richardson has been No. 2 on my list since Alabama’s victory over Penn State. He continues to produce major yardage totals and he’s on pace to score well over 20 TDs.
There is no debate. He is the best RB in college football because he’s been the most consistent performer on one of the two best teams in the country. If you’re still not convinced then consider that Richardson’s 2011 campaign is better than Mark Ingram’s 2009 campaign. Ingram was the 09 Heisman winner.
3. Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State
Last Week: 281 yards, 3 TDs, & 1 INT in win vs. Air Force.
Outlook: Boise State got all they could ask from Air Force, but they still managed to pull off the victory. As a result, Moore won his 45th FBS game, which tied him with former Texas QB Colt McCoy for most all-time. Still, this game only reinforces the common held opinion that the Broncos are not as good as they were a year ago. This game shouldn't have been as close as it was.
4. Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State
Last Week: 338 yards, 3 TDs & 1 INT in win at Missouri.
Outlook: We have a new entry to the Heisman race. Weeden’s been lingering on the bubble since late September, but he finally broke through this past weekend with the setbacks of Jones and Wilson.
The OSU standout has arguably given us the strongest Heisman moment of the year. Down 20-3 on the road in one of the college football’s toughest venues, Weeden threw for 400-plus yards, two TDs and zero INTs in a comeback victory over Texas A&M. That game was the first I saw of OSU this season. Since then, one thing has become apparent. OSU is the best team in the Big 12.
5. Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin
Last Week: 253 total yards, 3 TDs (1 rushing) & 2 INTs in loss at No. 16 Michigan State.
Outlook: Where do I begin? First, I’m aware that this spot can go to Landry Jones or Robert Griffin III. However, I give the edge to Wilson because I believe Wisconsin’s schedule is easy enough to run the table the rest of the way. Let’s talk about that game, though.
What a rollercoaster ride. Wisconsin jumps out of the gate early to take a 14-0 lead. The crowd is out of it and the Badgers look like they’re going to roll. The Spartans rebound in the most unusual way. They get a safety, block a field goal, and a block punt for a TD. They take a two TD lead early in the fourth quarter only to allow Wilson the opportunity to cement his history in Wisconsin football lore.
The Badger QB orchestrates two outstanding TD drives to tie this game with less than two minutes remaining. However, after awful clock management from Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema, MSU had an opportunity for a hail marry. QB Kurt Cousins, who outplayed Wilson for much of the game, chucks it about 55 yards in the air and somehow a Spartan comes down with the ball. The wideout muscles his way inches across the goal line and shatters the dreams of the state of Wisconsin in the process. It was one of the epic endings in Big Ten history.
