2017 Heisman Trophy Power Rankings: Week 9

2017 Heisman Trophy Power Rankings: Week 9
I need to see more than two or three games to start touting someone as a Heisman Trophy candidate. Well, for most teams now we’ve seen seven (or eight) games.

Heisman Trophy Power Rankings: Week Three

Clemson quarterback <strong> Tahj Boyd</strong> and Georgia running back <strong> Todd Gurley</strong>, both of whom were in our rankings last week, were off this weekend.
The end of the third weekend of college football comes with a few more changes to the short list of Heisman hopefuls. Ohio State’s Braxton Miller has been eliminated from consideration, and Jadeveon Clowney appears to be off the list for good as well. Miller sat out of Ohio State’s win at Cal, and wasn’t...

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.
Last week we looked at how some of the front-runners for the Heisman Trophy performed, and threw a couple sleepers into the mix. 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 »
