Here’s what the top Heisman candidates did on Saturday….

Teddy Bridgewater went 17 of 22 for 212 yards with four touchdowns and no picks in Louisville’s 72-0 victory over FIU.

Jameis Winston was 10 of 19 for 148 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in FSU’s 54-6 win over Bethune-Cookman.

Aaron Murray went 22 of 30 for 408 yards with three touchdowns and one pick in Georgia’s 45-21 victory over North Texas.

Todd Gurley rushed for 91 yards and a score on 21 carries in Georgia’s win over North Texas.

Johnny Manziel was 14 of 21 for 244 yards and one touchdown (with one pick) and also ran for 102 yards and two scores in Texas A&M’s 42-13 win over SMU.

Bryce Petty went 18 of 27 for 351 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions in Baylor’s 70-7 win over Louisiana-Monroe.

Chuckie Keeton went 21 of 39 for 179 yards and two touchdowns (with no picks) in Utah State’s 17-14 loss to USC.

1. Marcus Mariota

2. Johnny Manziel

3. Tajh Boyd

4. AJ McCarron

5. Teddy Bridgewater

6. Brett Hundley

7. Aaron Murray

8. Todd Gurley

9. Bryce Petty

    Yes, what’s your point?

    The Heisman is supposed to go to the best player in college football. So why is McCarron even in he conversation?

    From what I read, Johnny played a half.

    My question is why no LSU Quarterback?

    LSU is fully reconstituted on defense and only getting better. With their stable of running backs they are going to get better and better. The week at Georgia will tell a lot.

    My Bama boys have Ole Miss and I fully expect them to do to Ole Miss what they did with A&M. Pound the ball so consistently that you will think Woody Hayes was on the sidelines again instead of Saban.

    Pitt WR Tyler Boyd, is the best true freshman in the country.

    Stop with the Melvin Gordon crap please!! This trophy goes to players on teams that are good.

    Melvin Gordon is a beast, and should be on that list.

    And Kenny Guiton was 24 of 34 for 215 and 6 TDs …….And all of that in just one half of play. I am not saying this kid is a Heisman contender, but out would be nice to see OSU and the back up QB get a little respect for what they are doing!
