2011 College Football – Heisman Hopefuls – Top 5
Man, this college football season is flying by. Week 9 is just around the corner as the Heisman Trophy race is heating up. Week 8 saw some Heisman hopefuls do well, while some didn't do so well. Let's take a closer look at this year's Heisman Trophy hopefuls - top 5.
Week 8 didn't see Luck put up Heisman Trophy like numbers against Washington, but, it was Washington and they smacked them around like tackling dummies, 65-21 so Luck didn't need his arm at all. He completed 16 of 21 passes for a modest 169 yards but on the season, he has the Cards undefeated, hitting over 71% of his passes with 20 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions. He currently leads all Heisman candidates. The Cardinals next game is against USC.
Mark Ingram who? Richardson is tearing it up this year. He has rushed for almost a thousand yards with 17 touchdowns. His running, as well as the rest of the Crimson Tide, will get a huge test when they face LSU in their next game.
Last week, Kellen Moore tied Colt McCoy for the most wins by an FBS quarterback with 45. Moore is hitting over 76% of his passes with 24 TD's and only 4 picks. His accuracy is incredible as the Broncos try to make a run at a national championship. Next game up with be UNLV on November 5th.
Boyd is putting up some ridiculous numbers. He has 24 TD's to only 3 interceptions and has thrown for over 2300 yards. His accuracy is not as impressive as Andrew Luck's or Kellen Moor'es, as he is completing 61% of his passes but, he is ONLY a Sophomore!
Wilson has only had one bad game this year where he threw 2 picks against Michigan State in the Badgers only loss on the year. Still, that only gave him 3 interceptions on the year with 16 TD's.
