The first two weeks of college football are officially in the books, and we've got a better impression of the players competing for the Heisman trophy. This list will change quite a bit before the end of the season, but these players look like the cream of the crop early in the year. Here are our Week 3 Heisman Trophy Power Rankings:
10. Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA
Rosen looked unreal in Week 1, but came back down to earth in Week 2. For now, he's hanging on in the Heisman race.
9. Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State
Cook guided MSU to a big win over the Oregon Ducks, which helps his Heisman hopes. Cook won't put up big stats (only 192 yards against Oregon), which could prevent him from climbing as high as his counterparts.
8. Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
Watson has played well so far, but he did so against Wofford and Appalachian State. His first real test comes this week, against Louisville.
7. Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
Chubb has played well, but several other RBs have been just a bit more impressive so far.
6. Cardale Jones, QB, Ohio State
After a strong performance against Virginia Tech, Jones was lackluster against Hawaii. The good news is he's still the starter for the Buckeyes, but needs to start playing better to stay in the Top 10.
5. Cody Kessler, QB, USC
Kessler has looked great and put up great numbers thus far, but has done so against Idaho and Arkansas State. Until he proves himself against tougher competition, he'll have trouble climbing the rankings.
4. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
Fournette put LSU on his back, carrying them to a win over Mississippi State. He racked up 159 yards and 3 TDs on 28 carries. If he keeps playing like that, and if LSU keeps winning, Fournette will be a serious threat to win the Heisman.
3. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State
Elliott has played wonderfully so far, although he didn't break any big runs against Hawaii. He appears to be the Buckeyes' leading Heisman candidate.
2. Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU
Boykin dropping to No. 2 is not a knock of TCU's star QB. He torched Stephen F. Austin and played well enough against Minnesota. Boykin still has a great chance to win the Heisman, but he's behind one player right now.
1. Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama
Henry has looked incredible in both his games. He plowed through Wisconsin for 147 yards and three TDs on only 13 carries. He scored three more times on 18 carries against Middle Tennessee. He likely won't keep up that pace all season, but Henry deserves the No. 1 spot in the power rankings. For now.Back to the NCAA Newsfeed
