Heisman Watch: Barrett at No. 5
By Matt Horkman

1. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
Last Week: 396 total yards (73 rushing) & 4 touchdowns (1 rushing) in win vs. Colorado

Outlook: Oregon routed Colorado behind the arm and legs of Mariota, who continues to compile outstanding statistics this season. Most notably, he’s thrown 32 touchdown passes and just 2 interceptions. Colorado is a bad team, so this game didn’t draw national attention. The Ducks do play in primetime next week against Oregon State, but Mariota’s big statement is going to have to come in the Pac-12 championship game, where he’ll have a chance to cement Oregon’s place in this year’s playoff.

Stock: Steady

2. Melvin Gordon III, RB, Wisconsin
Last Week: 264 total yards (64 receiving) & 2 touchdowns in win at Iowa

Outlook: It took only a week, but Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine broke Gordon’s single-game rushing record. His record falling doesn’t have much impact on his Heisman status, though. He remains one of the frontrunners, as he continues to enhance his stock with his steady play. His 64 receiving yards against Iowa was actually a career-high. In addition, he tied legendary running back Ron Dayne’s Big Ten single-season rushing record this week. Dayne ran for 2,109 yards in 1996. Gordon is set break the record against Minnesota next Saturday.

Stock: Steady

3. Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU
Last Week: Idle

Outlook: TCU has a couple extra days to prepare for Texas, who they play on Thanksgiving night. The Longhorns are playing much better now than they were earlier in the season, so the Horned Frogs should be on upset alert. Regardless of what happens, Boykin is a distant third in this Heisman race.

Stock: Steady

4. Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
Last Week: 223 total yards (30 rushing) & 4 touchdowns (1 rushing) in win vs. Vanderbilt

Outlook: The worst result of the week for Prescott came Saturday afternoon, when Arkansas thumped Ole Miss. The Rebels' loss sucks a lot of the buzz out of this Saturday’s meeting between them and Mississippi State. Alabama receiver Amari Cooper now has an opportunity to jump Prescott as the SEC's top Heisman candidate with the Egg Bowl now taking a clear backseat to the Iron bowl within the conference.

Stock: SteadyJ.T. Barrett

5. J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State
Last Week: 380 total yards (78 rushing), 4 touchdowns, & 2 interceptions in win vs. Indiana

Outlook: Despite throwing for more than 300 yards and four touchdowns, Barrett didn’t play particularly well against Indiana. His two interceptions kept the Hoosiers in the game, before Ohio State eventually pulled away in the fourth quarter. Nonetheless, Barrett moves into the No. 5 slot, thanks to an underwhelming performance from Cooper.

Stock: Up
