Every week for the rest of the college football season I am going to try and post what I think are the top 5 Heisman Candidates and brief description of why I rated that player where he is.
1. Kellen Moore QB Boise State- Passed for 370 yards and 2 TD's against Wyoming in a 51-6 blowout. This will be a big week for Boise State and Kellen Moore if they wish to stay in the national spotlight as they play #24 Oregon State in a nationallly televised game Saturday night.
2.Andrew Luck QB Stanford- Already has 10 TD passes on the season with 674 yards passing and 140 yards rushing on the year. Should put up some more big numbers this week against Notre Dame.
3. Denard Robinson QB Michigan- I refuse to put him any higher on my list until Michigan plays a quality opponent. I'm sorry but Notre Dame, UMass, and UConn aren't exactly staggering defences. We'll see how the qb plays against some of the tougher Big 10 defences.
4. Terrelle Pryor QB Ohio State- Hasn't really put up any staggering numbers yet this year does have 6 TD's but he threw 2 ints against a weak Ohio team this past Saturday. If Ohio State keeps winning he will remain in the top 5.
5 John Clay RB Wisconsin- I am going show a little bias here but John Clay is the main reason why Wisconsin is 3-0 right now. He hasn't had as many carries this year but this is due to the Wisconsin coaching staff wanting to keep him fresh throughout the season. Should have another 100 yard running game this week.
