ACC: Week 2 Review

It’s difficult to make a strong case for Heisman at this point within the ACC.  After all, the players making the statistical headlines haven’t played any meaningful games and the teams that have played a competitive game won/lost as a team.  It’s odd because the conference’s most talented QB is a backup (Trevor Lawrence) while[…]

Big 12: Week 2 Recap

Surprise, surprise, the Big 12’s best Heisman candidates (so far) come from the quarterback position.  So far two guys have stood above the rest in the conference best known for high-powered offenses. One QB in college football is not only doing his best impression of the 2017 Heisman Trophy Winner Baker Mayfield, he’s actually doing[…]

Big Ten: Week 2 Recap

The Big Ten in terms of Heisman conversation has so far boiled down to three players on two teams. Let’s begin with the sensational sophomore from Wisconsin Jonathan ‘Touchdown’ Taylor, or JTT for the intrigue of 90’s kids out there.  Taylor amassed 253 yards and three TD’s on Saturday against a team not exactly known[…]

Pac-12: Week 2 Revisited

Well the Pac-12 might not be the best power-5 conference in the country (worst winning % of any P-5 conference), but they have some of the best Heisman prospects in 2018. A possible #1 overall pick in next year’s draft, Oregon’s Justin Herbert looks like an NFL quarterback standing 6’6″ and weighing around 230.  Herbert[…]

2018 Preseason Heisman Watch List: Bryce Love

Bryce Love, Stanford RB It only makes sense for the Heisman runner-up to naturally move into the role as ‘favorite’ after the departure of leading vote-getter, Baker Mayfield.  In fact, only three of the top-10 Heisman finishers from 2017 are back playing college football in 2018 (Jonathan Taylor for Wisconsin and McKenzie Milton for UCF).[…]

2018 Preseason Heisman Watch List: Tua Tagovailoa

Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama QB It’s relatively unprecedented for a player to head into the season as a ‘Heisman favorite’ after having little to no playing time the year before, but Tua Tagovailoa made the most of his brief stint in the 2017 National Championship Game for Vegas to put him atop some preseason lists. Tagovailoa’s[…]

HeismanWatch.com’s Week 3 Rankings

With Louisville’s loss against Clemson last Saturday, the debate for Heisman front-runner is more debatable now than it has been for the past 11 months.  As we get set to kickoff conference play and the season begins to unwrap itself, what we learned or thought we know can be forgotten any given Saturday.  Despite the[…]

HeismanWatch.com’s Week 2 Rankings

We have more months left in the season than we have weeks played, yet we are starting to see some separation in the Heisman ranks.  The Heisman is generally a quarterback-favoring award and this season is no exception.  Quarterbacks are dominating the Heisman discussion.  Which probably means it would be an excellent season to excel[…]

The Emotional Leader Of College Football

Under the brightest lights and on the biggest stage of the week, Baker Mayfield was awesome and inspiring. Saturday night, the #5 Oklahoma Sooners went into Columbus, OH and laid it on the #2 The Ohio St. Buckeyes in large part to the play and leadership of Baker Mayfield. Mayfield was his usual sensational self;[…]
