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>
Against Eastern Kentucky on Saturday, Bridgewater put up more big numbers. That should be consistent this entire season, which is a double-edged sword for Bridgewater's Heisman candidacy; Louisville has a weak schedule, so while he should put up enormous numbers, the lack of a marquee victory could ultimately hurt his case.

Now that we’re thru Week Two of the college football season, the sample size is larger and some of the wins (and losses) have been bigger as well. One significant name you... Read more »
