Breaking down the Heisman race after week 6

Calvin Cook has continued to jump off the screen, this time running for 150 yards in the tight win over Miami. While FSU has their problems, they have found their running game. This has the added effect of taking more pressure off the young quarterback, Deondre Francois. The offense runs better when Cook runs better.

Jake Browning tore through the Oregon Ducks and now has 1,418 passing yards and 26 total touchdowns. He has a great offensive line and running game, along with a defense that clamps down on opponents. He is in one of the best positions of any the Heisman candidates.

Give Jabrill Peppers the trophy already. Can we agree how much fun it would be to not have the normal quarterback/running back win the trophy? This guy is not only the most dynamic and versatile player in college, he also loves the game more than the average football player. Head coach Jim Harbaugh has talked about how he never has to shout for Peppers in a game. When he's not in, he is always right next to Harbaugh on the sideline constantly trying to get back on the field. Coordinators talk about how he would play both sides until he drops if they let him. The only problem is making sure they do not run him into the ground; the man loves to play football. Along with a love of the game, he can play any position. He now has collected 38 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, five quarterback hurries, 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble, 98 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns on just five attempts, 344 return yards and a return touchdown. He is a monster and should get college’s most prestigious award.

Lamar Jackson is also still in the Heisman running coming off the bye week; if you do not know that, then I cannot help you.
