Heisman Trophy Power Rankings: Week Two

<strong>Teddy Bridgewater,</strong> QB, Louisville<br>
<strong>Week Two</strong><br>
Passing: 22-232, 397 yds, 4 TD, 0 INT<br>
Rushing: 1 rush, -1 yd, 0 TD<br>
<strong>Week One</strong><br>
Passing: 23-28, 355 yds, 5 TD, 1 INT<br>
Rushing: 2 rush, 1 yd, 0 TD<br><br>
