Many have said the 2015 college football season was "the year of the running back" thanks to the amazing production of several top backs around the country, but quarterback is still the most important position in the sport, and these guys played it better than anyone. Here are the top six QB's in the country from the past season:
6) Luke Falk, Washington State Cougars
Falk led Washington State to their first winning season since 2003, completing nearly 71 percent of his passes for 4,266 yards, 36 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. He ranks fourth in the country in most passing yards and touchdowns.
5) Paxton Lynch, Memphis Tigers
Lynch led the Tigers to a upset victory over Ole Miss and to the No. 13 ranking at one point, while emerging as a first-round NFL Draft prospect in the process. He passed for 3,670 yards, 28 touchdowns, and only three interceptions, adding 240 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
4) Jared Goff, Cal Golden Bears
Goff is expected to be the first quarterback taken in the NFL Draft this summer, and showed why this year while leading Cal to a 7-5 record, throwing for 4,252 yards, 37 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.
3) Trevone Boykin, TCU Horned Frogs
Boykin missed TCU's game against Oklahoma with an ankle injury, but he was still one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the country this season. He passed for 3,575 yards, 31 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in just 11 games, while rushing for 612 yards and nine touchdowns.
2) Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma Sooners
Mayfield surprisingly won the quarterback job over incumbent Trevor Knight this offseason after transferring from Texas Tech, and turned the Sooners into the Big 12 champs and a College Football Playoff team. He passed for 3,389 yards and 35 touchdowns to just five interceptions while also rushing for 420 yards and seven more touchdowns.
1) Deshaun Watson, Clemson Tigers
The leader of the #1 team in the nation, Watson passed for 3,512 yards and rushed for 887 more, scoring 41 combined touchdowns. He can do it all and he's the reason why the Tigers have a fantastic chance to win their first national title since 1981.Back to the NCAA Newsfeed
