CFB Heisman Rankings Going Into Week 11
Week 10 was filled with solid performances from all the Heisman contenders. Nobody played bad enough to eliminate themselves from contention, but nobody played good enough to make any significant movement in the rankings. Here is my Heisman top 5 after Week 10.
1. Kenneth Walker III (RB, Michigan State) ↔️
Kenneth Walker stays at 1 despite Michigan State’s loss at Purdue. Walker had 146 rushing yards on 23 carries. MSU only gave the ball to Walker seven times in the 2nd half. He leads the nation in rushing as well & is a broken tackle machine.
2. Bryce Young (QB, Alabama) ↔️
Alabama struggled with LSU this past week. Bryce Young still threw for 302 yards & 2 touchdowns. Young put the offense on his back because the rushing attack only gained 6 yards. He remains at number 2.
3. Sean Tucker (RB, Syracuse) ↔️
Sean Tucker stays at 3 after Syracuse’s bye week. Tucker did lose the lead in rushing yards to Kenneth Walker III. Tucker has had over 100 rushing yards in every game this season except one. His consistency keeps him in contention.
4. Kenny Pickett (QB, Pitt) ↔️
It’s safe to say Kenny Pickett made the right decision by staying at Pitt. Pickett has thrown 29 touchdowns & only 3 interceptions this season. He lit up Duke’s defense for 416 yards & 3 touchdowns. Pickett hasn’t had a bad game yet.
5. Brennan Armstrong (QB, Virginia) ↔️
Brennan Armstrong remains at 5 after the Cavaliers’ bye week. Armstrong is 2nd in the nation in passing yards, only behind Bailey Zappe. Virginia plays a solid Notre Dame defense on Saturday. We’ll know if Armstrong is for real after this week.
Other players considered: Matt Corral, CJ Stroud, Bailey Zappe, Tyler Allgeier
