1. Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
Last Week: 187 total yards (24 receiving) & 2 touchdowns in win vs. Vanderbilt
Outlook: Gurley claims the top spot this week after running roughshod over Vanderbilt. Ameer Abdullah, Kenny Hill, and Marcus Mariota were all apart of losses this week, which benefited Gurley. Georgia has a manageable schedule in front of them, with games against Auburn and Missouri being their biggest obstacles. The Bulldogs travel to Missouri next week.
2. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
Last Week: 276 passing yards & 2 touchdowns in loss vs. Arizona
Outlook: You know by now that I’m not going to overreact because of one game. Mariota actually played reasonably well against Arizona, but a controversial penalty, and Oregon’s defense cost the Ducks. Mariota can reclaim the top spot next week with a big performance against UCLA and help from Missouri and Auburn.
3. Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
Last Week: 336 total yards (77 rushing) & 5 touchdowns (3 rushing) in win vs. No. 6 Texas A&M
Outlook: Nobody is trending upward as much as Prescott is. He moves all the way from the bubble to No. 3. Prescott was masterful against Texas A&M on Saturday. Whether it was through the air or on the ground, he did whatever he wanted against the Aggies' defense. The junior quarterback has a date against Auburn (5-0) next week, in what will be the Bulldogs toughest game until November.
4. Kenny Hill, QB, Texas A&M
Last Week: 400 total yards (35 rushing), 4 touchdowns, & 3 interceptions in loss at No. 12 Mississippi State
Outlook: A difficult schedule could spell the doom for Hill, though it also gives him ample amount of opportunities to solidify his status in the top five. The Aggies host Ole Miss, who is fresh off their upset over Alabama. The Rebels have an outstanding defense, so it’ll be a battle of strengths on Saturday. Hill, who has thrown an interception in three consecutive games, needs to play more efficiently or he risks falling out of the top five.
5. Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama
Last Week: 9 receptions for 91 yards in loss at No. 11 Ole Miss
Outlook: Facing constant double teams from Ole Miss' secondary, Cooper posted seasons lows in receptions and yardage. He also failed to score for the first time since week one. Still, if nine receptions for 91 yards is his low point, then Cooper is in this race for the long haul.
6. Everett Golson, QB, Notre Dame
Last Week: 275 total yards (34 rushing), 2 touchdowns, & 1 interception in win vs. No. 14 Stanford
Outlook: Down 14-10 late in the fourth quarter, Golson drove the Fighting Irish down the field, putting them in position to win the game in the closing seconds. Facing fourth-and-11, Golson rolled to his left and fired a dart to the back of the end zone that landed in the hands of tight end Ben Koyack. Consider this play the official beginning of Golson’s Heisman campaign.
7. Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska
Last Week: 67 total yards (22 receiving) & 2 touchdowns in loss at No. 10 Michigan State
Outlook: It’s never a good thing to play your worst game in front of a primetime audience. Michigan State’s defense showed no respect to Nebraska’s passing game, consistently stacking the box with seven or eight defenders at a time. The Nebraska running back found no running room. He averaged just 1.9 yards per carry, his worst since he became Nebraska’s starter in 2012. Abdullah won’t see a defense as physical as Michigan State’s again unless the Cornhuskers play the Spartans in the Big Ten championship.
8. Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
Last Week: 111 passing yards & 2 touchdowns in win vs. Texas
Outlook: Petty played awful against Texas, completing just 7-of-22 passes. Baylor managed to win comfortably, though, setting up an intriguing game next week against TCU. The Horned Frogs are fresh off a 38-33 victory over Oklahoma. If Petty is going to make a move in the Heisman race, it starts with next week’s game.
On the Bubble
Rakeem Cato, QB, Marshall
Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA

Bo Wallace, QB, Ole Miss
