Another week another new top 5 for the Heisman Trophy

1. Saquon Barkley-Last week #1-Had a bye week this week but 3 challenging games ahead and he could really cement himself as the front runner as they play Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State in the next 3 weeks. Biggest win @ Iowa.

2. Baker Mayfield-Last week #2-Baker rebounded from his home loss against Iowa State and beat rival Texas. He threw for 302 yards, 2 touchdowns and had his first pick.  For the season he has 1937 yards with 17 td's and just one int.  This week @ Kansas State. Big win @ Ohio State.

3. Bryce Love-Last week #3-Bryce continues to dominate as he is the leading rusher in D1 and it's not even close. This season 1387 yards rushing with 11 td's.  This week @ Oregon State.  Big win @ Utah.

4. Mason Rudolph-Last week not ranked-Just tearing defense up this year by throwing for 2368 yards 19 td's and just 4 int's. Has thrown for 300 yards every game this year including 2 400 yard games.  This week @ Texas.  Biggest win @ Texas Tech.

5. J.T. Barrett-Last week not ranked.  J.T. and the Buckeyes are coming on strong with just the one loss to Oklahoma but can and are recovering from that.
