Tracking the Candidates
Oct. 17, 2017
Barkley and Penn State had the week off, but he remains on top of the Heisman Watch list. A daunting three-game stretch of Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State is up next.
Love leads the nation in rushing yards (1,387) and yards per game (198.14) and leads the Pac-12 in touchdowns.
Mayfield prevailed over his rival, Texas, one more time in his senior year in dramatic fashion, once again showing his leadership means as much to his teams as his stats.
Rudolph contributed 470 yards to a school-record 747 yards of offense and accounted for four touchdowns.
