Heisman Watch 2017: Week 7

 

1. Bryce Love – RB Stanford: 135 carries 1,387 yards 10.3 YPC 11 TD. LW 3.

Move over Saquon...we have a new leader at the top of the board.

 

2. Saquon Barkley – RB Penn State: 102 carries 649 yards 6.4 YPC 6 TD 29 catches 395 yards 13.6 YPC 2 TD 8 KR 258 yards 32.3 YPR 1 TD 1-1 16 yards 1 passing TD. LW 1.

A week off for Barkley before he is expected to carry a big load in a revenge game against Michigan.

 

3. Baker Mayfield – QB Oklahoma: 117-161 74.6% 1,937 yards 17 TD 1 INT. LW 4.

At least Baker threw an interception this week meaning he will jot have to be tested to see if he is a cyborg.

 

4. Mason Rudolph – QB Oklahoma State: 136-204 66.7% 2,368 yards 19 TD 4 INT 5 rushing TD.  LW 7.

Seems to look a lot like a young Ben Roethlisberger on film.

 

5. Jonathan Taylor – RB Wisconsin: 127 carries 986 yards 7.8 YPC 10 TD. LW 8.

Taylor now has three games of 200 yards on the season.

 

6. Lamar Jackson – QB Louisville: 157-261 60.2% 1,990 yards 16 TD 5 INT 113 carries 690 yards 6.1 YPC 10 TD. LW 6.

Louisville suffered another loss but Jackson did all he could on the offensive side of the football.

 

7. Minkah Fitzpatrick – CB Alabama: 32 tackles 4.5 TFL 1 sack 1 INT 4 PBU. LW NR.

Fitzpatrick has been the defensive leader along with Ronnie Harrison for Alabama.

 

8. Bradley Chubb – DE NC State: 37 tackles 14 TFL 6.5 sacks 7 QB Hurries  2 PBU 1 FF 1 Blocked Kick. LW NR.

Chubb is establishing himself as the most dominate defensive lineman at the NCAA level this season.

 

9. Luke Falk – QB Washington State: 216-305 70.8% 2,286 yards 19 TD 7 INT.  LW 2.

5 interceptions against Cal and the teams first loss sends Fulk plummeting down the board.

 

10. Rashaad Penny – RB San Diego State: 164 carries 1,046 yards 6.4 YPC 10 TD 16 catches 127 yards 2 TD 7 KR 220 yards 31.4 YPK 1 TD. LW 5.

Penny was bottled up by Boise State as San Diego State suffered their first loss of the season.

 

Honorable Mention:   Josh Adams, RB, Notre Dame;  Michael Gallup  WR, Colorado State; Ed Oliver, DT, Houston; Micah Kiser, LB, Virginia and J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State.
