1. De’Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon
Last Week: 222 all-purpose yards & 2 TDs (1 receiving) in win vs. Tennessee Tech
Outlook: It’s just a matter of time until Thomas receives Heisman buzz. The Ducks have a manageable schedule, an explosive offense (54 points per game), and Thomas might be the most exciting player in college football. He received just 10 touches against Tennessee Tech, but he averaged 22.2 yards per touch. Those are astounding numbers.
2. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
Last Week: 411 passing yards & 5 TDs in win vs. James Madison
Outlook: Two games into the schedule and Smith’s an early-season contender. He already has 9 TD passes to zero interceptions. An early October showdown against Texas figures to be West Virginia’s first test. Until then, the Mountaineers have two more home games, so look for Smith’s statistics to continue to standout.
3. Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
Last Week: 362 total yards (20 rushing), 4 TDs (2 rushing), & 1 INT in win vs. Florida Atlantic
Outlook: Last Saturday, Murray turned in his most efficient performance of the young season. He completed 14 of 19 passes for a career-high 342 yards as Georgia racked up a school-record 713 total yards. The Bulldogs host Vanderbilt and Tennessee the next two weeks.
4. Matt Barkley, QB, USC
Last Week: 254 passing yards & 2 INTs in loss at Stanford
Outlook: Losing to Stanford doesn’t disqualify Barkley from the race, but it makes his road to victory more difficult. The former frontrunner never looked comfortable as the Cardinal defense pressured him much of the night He completed less than 50% of his passes, as a result. Luckily, it’s early enough for USC and Barkley to rebound, but the margin of error is now slim to none.
5. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Last Week: 85 rushing yards & 1 TD in win vs. UAB
Outlook: You get the feeling South Carolina and Georgia are heading for a mid-season clash in October. Whether it’s Murray or Lattimore, the winner may emerge as a Heisman contender, while the loser fades out of the race.
6. Denard Robinson, QB, Michigan
Last Week: 397 total yards (106 rushing), 4 TDs (1 rushing), & 1 INT
Outlook: Since receiving a pummeling courtesy of Alabama, Robinson’s significantly progressed. He’s totaled 823 yards of offense as Michigan looks to find their place in a soft Big Ten. Robinson and his teammates have an excellent opportunity to redeem themselves as they face Notre Dame (fresh off a win over Michigan State) in primetime.
7. Damien Williams, RB, Oklahoma
Last Week: Idle
Outlook: Williams is a dark horse now, but he won’t be for long. Oklahoma faces Kansas State next week in primetime, so we should finally begin to see their offense take center stage. Many expect QB Landry Jones to emerge as a Heisman contender, but Williams has been the more impressive player, averaging 129.5 rushing yards per game.
