1. Lamar Jackson | Louisville QB | Sophomore | Last week: (1)
Jackson dominated yet again last week, as Louisville defeated Boston College 52-7. The superstar quarterback had 7 total touchdowns in the game, and surpassed 1,000 rushing yards for the season with 185 yards on the ground. Jackson has 1,181 rushing yards this season. Jackson has three games left. Jackson is a quarterback.

2. Deshaun Watson | Clemson QB | Junior | Last week: (2)
Watson didn’t have to do much last week as Clemson handled Syracuse at home. The Tigers quarterback needs a collapse from Lamar Jackson and Louisville to claim the Heisman trophy.

3. Jabrill Peppers | Michigan LB/DB | Junior | Last week: (3)
There aren’t many great college football games this weekend, but Michigan plays in primetime on Saturday (8:00 PM ET on ABC). It should be fun to tune into that game just to watch Peppers… and maybe they’ll finally have a Jim Harbaugh iso-cam.

4. Jake Browning | Washington QB | Sophomore | Last week: (4)
All Browning did last week against Cal was throw for 378 yards and 6 touchdowns. It’s a shame the quarterback is putting up insane numbers the same time as Lamar Jackson dominates the landscape of college football, but if he keeps it up, Browning will be a finalist for sure.

5. J.T. Barrett | Ohio State QB | Junior (RS) | Last week: (5)
The Buckeyes followed up two poor performances (including the loss to Penn State two weeks ago) with a dismantling of then #9 Nebraska, winning 62-3. Barrett continues to show he’s one of the best players in the country.
