There was some big shakeup in the Heisman race this past week in college football. Stanford had a big win and Andrew Luck was a big contributor to it. Clemson lost to Georgia Tech and Tajh Boyd’s Heisman campaign more or less ended. Here is my top five as it stands now in the race.

1)      Trent Richardson– The Alabama runningback has been a beast all year. In my view he is the best player on the best team in the nation. Alabama has relied heavily on Richardson this year with A.J Mccaron beign a first year QB. If Bama beats LSU and remains unbeaten I think Richardson is the most deserving of the award.

2)      Andrew Luck– Luck had a great performance in Stanford’s huge tripleover time win over USC this past week. At different points in the game Stanford was down by ten and with three minutes left the Cardinal was down by 7. Luck drove the offense down the field on a TD drive. Stanford then scored three TD’s in OT and went on to win a huge game. Luck is having a great year and I’m looking forward to him facing some upcoming tough Pac-12 tests.

3)      Kellen Moore– Moore has had an outstanding career and his having possibly his best season so far this year. The Boise QB is like a surgeon going up and down the field and carving up opposing defenses. I love watching Moore and Boise play because Moore is so efficient with the ball. If Luck or Richardson even have a slight slipup I would have no problem moving Moore to the top of the race.

4)      Silas Redd– The Nittany Lion RB is somewhat quietly putting up a huge year. The PSU QB situation hasn’t been very stable so far this year but it isn’t affecting Redd much. The sophomore RB has run for 987 yards on 195 rushes for 7 tds and is a big reason why PSU is undefeated so far in Big10 play.

5)      Brandon Weeden– The OkState QB is having a huge year and is in charge of one of the most prolific offenses in the nation. The Cowboys are third in the BCS and Weeden is a huge reason why. He is dishing out the ball really nicely and it has been a tough task so far to stop this Cowboy offense.
