Heisman Watch 2016: Week 7

 

1. Lamar Jackson – QB Louisville: 114-196 58.2% 1,806 yards 15 TD 4 INT 113 carries 832 yards 7.4 YPC 15 TD. LW 1.

A bit of a lackluster game for Jackson with only 325 yards of total offense and a pair of touchdowns being "lackluster".

 

2. Jake Browning Soph. – QB Washington: 104-144 72.2% 1,418 yards 23 TD 2 INT. LW 2.

Six touchdowns for Browning who currently owns a ridiculous 23/2 TD-INT ratio.

 

3. Jabrill Peppers – S/RB/KR/PR Michigan: 38 tackles 10 TFL 2.5 sacks 6 quarterback hurries 1 FF 5 carries 98 yards 19.8 YPC 2 TD 14 PR 249 yards 17.8 YPR 1 TD 3 KR 95 yards 31.7 YPR . LW 4.

Continues to do it all for Michigan.

 

4. J.T. Barrett – QB Ohio State: 96-152 63.2% 1,207 yards 16 TD 4 INT 91 carries 434 yards 4.8 YPC 6 TD. LW 5.

Barrett made the big plays when he had to and was responsible for keeping the Buckeyes unbeaten.

 

5. Deshaun Watson – QB Clemson: 164-258 63.6% 1,950 yards 20 TD 8 INT 71 carries 289 yards 4.1 YPC 1 TD. LW 3.

Season high 378 yards passing as Clemson escapes with a win again and keeps the Heisman drive alive.

 

6. Donnell Pumphrey – RB San Diego State: 167 carries 1,111 yards 6.7 YPC 11 TD 18 catches 131 yards 0 TD LW 6.

Pumphrey still leads FBS in rushing and now he is passing some legends in the NCAA history books.

 

7.  Dalvin Cook- RB Florida State: 159 carries 900 yards 5.7 YPC 7 TD 21 catches 356 yards 17.0 YPC 1 TD. LW 8.

So dangerous in the open field when getting through the line both running and catching the football.

 

8. Jeremy McNichols – RB Boise State: 150 carries 775 yards 5.2 YPC 11 TD 20 catches 263 yards 13.2 YPC 3 TD. LW NR.

Best running back in the nation that nobody outside of the Mountain West has heard of.

 

9. Greg Ward Jr. – QB Houston: 157-224 70.2% 1,938 yards 11 TD 5 INT 105 carries 414 yards 3.9 YPC 6 TD. LW 7.

Starting to become more of a one-man show with Ward in recent weeks and the defense has to step up and give this team some solid wins if Ward wants his Heisman campaign to go anywhere.

 

10. Corey Davis – WR Western Michigan: 44 catches 652 yards 14.8 YPC 10 TD. LW 10.

Two more touchdowns against an Akron team that isn't a pushover.

 

Honorable Mention:   Jamaal Williams, RB, BYU;  Patrick Mahomes II QB, Texas Tech and Davis Webb, QB, California..
