Heisman Watch: Week 14

 

1. Marcus Mariota - QB Oregon: 229-334 68.6% 3,470 yards 36 touchdowns 2 interceptions 107 carries 636 yards 6.0 YPC 11 TD rushing 1 catch 26 yards 1 TD. LW 1.

What else can you say other than a TD/INT ratio of 18-1...ridiculous.

 

2. Melvin Gordon – RB Wisconsin: 283 carries 2,260 yards 8.0 YPC 26 TD 17 catches 151 yards 3 TD. LW 2.

Faces an Ohio State team in the Big Ten Championship game that has shown they can be run on.

 

3. Amari Cooper – WR Alabama: 103 catches 1,573 yards 15.3 YPC 14 TD. LW 10.

One of the most dominant wide receivers performances witnessed in recent memory. He was open at will against Auburn.

 

4. J.T. Barrett – QB Ohio State: 203-314 64.6% 2,834 yards 34 TD 10 INT 171 carries 938 yards 5.5  YPC 11 TD. LW 5.

Season is over due to his fractured ankle but he may still be a finalist if Ohio State wins the Big Ten.

 

5. Dak Prescott – QB Mississippi State: 211-345 61.2% 2,996 yards 24 TD 10 INT 195 carries 939 yards 4.8 YPC 13 TD 2 catches 35 yards 1 TD. LW 3.

Prescott continues to drop down the list but he didn't play that badly against Ole Miss, just failed to come up with the big plays to get his team over the hump.

 

6. Trevone Boykin – QB TCU: 249-420 59.3% 3,254 yards 26 TD 6 INT 134 carries 598 yards 4.5 YPC 8 TD. LW 6.

In control all day against Texas, managed the game effectivly and didn't try to do too much.

 

7. Jay Ajayi – RB Boise State: 303 carries 1,619 yards 5.3 YPC 24 TD 45 catches 536 yards 11.9 YPC 4 TD  LW 9.

Dominant game finding the end zone five times against a notoriously tough defense in Utah State.

 

8. Jameis Winston – QB Florida State: 255-392 65.1% 3,250 yards 21 TD 17 INT 3 rushing TD. LW 4.

On this list because he doesn't lose and is clutch but his first half performances in games has to be concerning.

 

9. Cody Kessler – QB USC: 292-413 70.7% 3,505 yards 36 TD 4 INT  2 Rushing TD LW NR.

36 touchdowns with a completion percentage over 70% makes Kessler an elite quarterback.

 

10. Garrett Grayson – QB Colorado State: 250-386 64.8% 3,779 yards 32 TD 6 INT  LW 7.

Grayson stays on this list despite Colorado State losing to Air Force because he played a sound game and wasn't to blame for the defeat.

 

Honorable MentionBryce Petty, QB, Baylor;  Hau'oli Kikaha, DE, Washington; Devontae Booker, RB, Utah; Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska; Shane Carden, QB, East Carolina; Rakeem Cato, QB, Marshall.
