1. Jason White, QB, Oklahoma – Another good day for the Oklahoma Quarterback as the Sooners took care of Missouri. Jason was 20 of 34 for 278 yards and 2 Touchdowns. His next challenge will come on the road at Colorado, which should give him a chance to build his stats.
2. Phillip Rivers, QB, North Carolina State – Just a decent day for Mr. Rivers in a 17-15 win against Clemson, but he will have huge numbers again this week as they travel to Duke. He is 215 of 305 for 2,539 yards and 18 Touchdowns, so we will have to stay tuned until they play Virginia in two weeks.
3. Kevin Jones, RB, Virginia Tech – Virginia Tech was off this past Saturday, but travel to West Virginia this week. He has 121 carries for 682 yards and 9 Touchdowns, while coming off a good game against Syracuse a week ago. Keep your eye on him as the game against Miami is coming soon!
4. BJ Symons, QB, Texas Tech – He just makes things happen as he just threw for 552 yards and 5 Touchdowns this week against Oklahoma State in a tough loss. He was 42 of 67 with on rushing Touchdown also on the day. He is 264 of 397 for 3,505 yards and 32 Touchdowns on year. The Red Raiders travel to Missouri, so let's see how this Big 12 season unfolds as he makes a run at the Heisman.
5. Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Pittsburgh – A good bounce back performance after the Notre Dame game with 8 receptions for 207 yards and 2 Touchdowns, but let's wait until the Panthers actually play against a good team. He has 45 receptions for 869 yards and 13 Touchdowns on the year as they prepare for Syracuse this week. We need to wait until he faces Miami and Virginia Tech for this guy to continue up the ladder.
6. Eli Manning, QB, Mississippi – He is back and another great game at home against Alabama, but he must get ready to face the Arkansas defense this week. He is 152 of 243 for 2,127 yards and 17 Touchdowns, so he has great numbers and Mississippi is winning, so will Eli make a run at New York City? Stay tuned and he might be able to pull something off that his brother was never capable of doing.
7. Chris Perry, RB, Michigan – A solid victory for the Wolverines and a good day for Mr. Perry with 140 yards against a bad Illinois football team. He has 180 carries for 999 yards and 12 Touchdowns, so he will be tested again against the Boilermaker defense at home in the Big House.
8. Cedric Cobbs, RB, Arkansas – Arkansas lost another tough game at home against Florida while Cedric rushed for 88 yards on 14 carries with 1 Touchdown. He has 118 carries for 728 yards and 6 Touchdowns, but is fading fast in the Heisman race. A must win for Arkansas at Mississippi and a must good game for Mr. Cobbs.
9. David Greene, QB, Georgia – The Bulldogs survived a close game from Vanderbilt in Nashville. Mr. Greene was 19 of 30 on the day with 208 yards. He is 131 of 211 for 1,680 and 6 Touchdowns on the year as Georgia host UAB this week, so they will be able to put together some stats this week for David Greene and company.
10. Brock Berlin, QB, Miami (Fl) – A blowout win against Temple and just a good day form this Quarterback who is on a great team. He is 141 of 231 for 1,604 yards and 9 Touchdowns on the year, while on passing for 187 yards in the game against Temple. In two weeks he will play against Virginia Tech, so we will learn more on his fate soon!
Outside Looking IN:
Rashaun Woods, WR, Oklahoma State – Back to Back big wins at home for the Cowboys has Mr. Woods is having a great year. He has 44 catches for 804 yards and 9 Touchdowns, while bringing his average per catch to 18.3 yards. He will really see how he plays in back to back road games with one of them coming against Oklahoma.
Chris Rix, QB, Florida State – The Seminoles beat a good Virginia team, but Rix just had a so-so game. He is 126 of 216 for 1,712 yards and 11 Touchdowns, so we will have to wait as the season unfolds.
Cadillac Williams, RB, Auburn – He is on the move and is having a good year even though is career day came against a bad Mississippi State team. He has 138 carries for 713 yards with an average per carry of 5.2 yards and 10 Touchdowns. Let's watch him as the Tigers travel to play LSU and that good defense of theirs.
Michael Turner, RB, Northern Illinois – He is having an outstanding year and just ran for 173 yards with 1 Touchdown against Western Michigan. He has 192 carries for 929 yards with 6 Touchdowns. As the Huskies rise in the poll, so will Mr. Turner for the Heisman, so stay tuned for the match up against Bowling Green this week.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Miami (Oh) – He is the best Quarterback in the nation and has put together another good day completing 23 of 31 for 215 yards and 2 Touchdowns against Ball State. He is 187 of 269 for 2,128 yards and 15 Touchdowns, which he will continue this week against Kent State and than will see against Bowling Green in two weeks.
Walter Reyes, RB, Syracuse – A good win against Boston College, but not very good back to back games for Mr. Reyes. He had 28 carries for 62 yards against the Eagles and 1 Touchdown, so we will have to wait another week as they play Pittsburgh. He has 131 carries for 776 yards and 12 Touchdowns with an average per carry of 5.9 yards.
Steven Jackson, RB, Oregon State – He is having an outstanding year, but did not have a great game against Washington while only rushing for 49 yards in the game. He has 205 carries for 926 yards and 9 Touchdowns on the year, so he must bounce back this week against Washington State.
Darren Sproles, RB, Kansas State – Didn't have a great game against Oklahoma State and just an alright game against Colorado, but does have three easy opponents coming soon. He has 146 carries for 846 yards and 8 Touchdowns, while he is fading fast in the Heisman race he must do something special soon!
Marion Barber III, RB, Minnesota – Well he is not the best back in the country while only getting 19 yards on 14 carries against Michigan State after that big game against the Michigan defense. That pretty much puts him out of the Heisman unless something fast happens. He has 121 carries for 759 yards and 15 Touchdowns.
