1. QB Cameron Newton, Auburn - This season Newton has rushed for 860 yards and 12 touchdowns and threw for 1,278 yards and 13 touchdowns and only has thrown 5 interceptions. Auburn has been lead by him and hasn’t lost a game this season and go up against LSU this week which will be a good test for him and if Newton can lead Auburn to a win he will be looking more and more like he will be holding up the Heisman in New York.
2. RB LaMichael James, Oregon - This season James has rushed for 848 yards and 9 touchdowns and also has caught 3 passes for 96 yards and 1 touchdown. Oregon is the new number one ranked team in the country in the polls and they play on ESPN on Thursday night against UCLA it will give everyone in the country a chance to see James and how good he is.
3. QB Kellen Moore, Boise State - This season Moore has thrown for 1,567 yards and 16 touchdowns and only 1 interception. Moore is a very effective quarterback and has great skill guys around him, but it will be hard for him to win the Heisman as they don’t play in a great conference and they aren’t on national TV that often.
4. QB Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State - This season Pryor has thrown for 1,505 yards and 15 touchdowns and only throwing 4 interceptions, and he has also rushed for 410 yards and 3 touchdowns. He drop this past week because his team lost to Wisconsin and he didn’t play all that great, he needs to show that he can be the player that we have seen early in the season for the rest of the season and Ohio State can’t afford anymore losses.
5. QB Denard Robinson, Michigan - This season Robinson has rushed for 1,096 yards and 9 touchdowns and threw for 1,319 yards and 9 touchdowns but has also thrown 5 interceptions. He has been outstanding, but he had a rough game against Michigan State and Iowa and was unable to finish the Iowa game because of an arm injury.
