The second week of the college football season elevated a few Heisman candidates into the almost ready to be named category. In reality, there hasn’t been any sort of leader board set in stone, but it’s looking like a few of the preseason favorites are positioning themselves nicely. Here is the top 10+1 Heisman contenders from last week. Now take a look at this weeks Heisman list.
1. Tajh Boyd is still riding high off of his victory over Georgia. What makes his performance even better is that Georgia went home and beat South Carolina the next week. Boyd has three passing and rushing touchdowns.
2. Teddy Bridgewater- The Louisville quarterback is completing 76.7% of his passes. He also has 9 touchdowns compared to one interception. As long as he keeps rolling he’ll remain in the top five.
3. Jameis Winston did not play last week, but we still haven’t forgotten about his extraordinary performance.
4. Derek Carr- The Fresno State quarterback has eight touchdown passes and only one interception. Carr is completing 71% of his passes in the first two games.
5. Johnny Manziel- At this point, voters still won’t vote for Manziel, but if he beats Alabama again, all bets are off. Manziel has thrown six touchdowns in roughly five quarters of play.
6. Marcus Mariota- The Oregon ring leader can do it all. Though his passing needs to get better this season, his running skills have been roasting teams. This season he’s run the ball nine times for 235 yards and three touchdowns. Mariota is averaging 26 yards per carry. He’s added three passing touchdowns.
7. Todd Gurley- The Georgia Bulldogs running back does it all. Gurley is averaging 7.3 yards per carry and has four total touchdowns. He runs mean and powerful.
8. Lache Seastrunk- The Baylor running back is averaging 9.3 yards per carry. He has five rushing touchdowns. Seastrunk is tied for the lead in touchdowns with the next player on the list.
9. De’Anthony Thomas- Oregon is putting up a lot of points so far, and Thomas is pacing the running game with 8.7 yards per carry. Like Seastrunk, he has five rushing touchdowns.
10. Jared Goff threw for 930 yards in the first two games. He’s match that effort with four touchdowns.
11. Braxton Miller- After getting hurt, it’s not known if Braxton Miller can play verse Cal this week. His health is a big concern for the Buckeyes.
