PGWU Heisman Watch: Week 9
October 25, 2010 Leave a comment
What a huge weekend in college football! We had huge upsets, devastating losses, point explosions and Cameron Newton keeps it going. We had so many names to choose from this week, so we decided to add in some players that should be in the discusion. Cameron Newton has a strangle hold on the top spot, but we have some movement this week.
5th Kellen Moore QB Boise State Broncos
He is nearly flawless this season, but with his schedule he should be. He takes a step back this week due to the bye, but he holds on in the top 5. I really think he will continue to drop because he plays a weak schedule the rest of the way.
4th Justin Blackmon WR Oklahoma State Cowboys
Another week, another huge game. This week he put up giant numbers on the vaunted Nebraska defense. With 5 catches for 157 and 2 scores against the Huskers he continues to lead the nation in a number of statistical categories. The Cowboys need to win a few more games and keep putting up the offensive numbers for Blackmon to get more attention.
3rd John Clay RB Wisconsin Badgers
John Clay helped lead the way for the Wisconsin Badger’s victory over the Iowa Hawkeys on Saturday. He rushed for 91 yards and 2 scores, churning out yards against the future NFL D-line of the Hawkeyes.For the season Clay has close to 900 yards and 13 TD.
2nd LaMichael James RB Oregon Ducks
The most explosive player on the number one team in the country deserves some love, right? James has been consistent all season, rushing for 123 yards and 2 TD in the Ducks 60-13 romp over the UCLA Bruins. He should continue his tremendous season throughout the Pac-10.
1st Cameron Newton QB Auburn Tigers
Did you see his long touchdown run on Saturday against LSU? If you didn’t check it here(that song is pretty good too, Winner by Jamie Foxx). Plays like that are nothing new for Newton, he has been doing it all year. He has the Auburn Tigers at 8-0, with their next toughest match coming at Alabama on November 26. He could have a TD number in the mid 40′s by then.
In The Discussion
DeMarco Murray RB Oklahoma Sooners, Robert Griffin QB Baylor Bears, Kirk Cousins QB Michigan State, Matt Barkley QB USC Trojans, Taylor Martinez QB Nebraska Cornhuskers, Terrelle Pryor QB Ohio State Buckeyes, Denard Robinson QB Michigan Wolverines
