Week twelve continues with rivalry matchups across the board. After this week, bowl season becomes the last chance for players to impress voters.


1. CJ Stroud

Junior, Ohio State

  • Week 12 Stats: 18-30, 241 Yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs, 77.5 QBR, 60.0 Comp %

2. Blake Corum 

Senior, Michigan

  • Week 12 Stats: 18 Carries, 108 Yards, 1 TD, 6.0 YPC
  • Season Stats: 245 Carries, 1,457 Yards, 18 TDs, 5.9 YPC

3. Drake Maye

Freshman, North Carolina

  • Week 12 Stats: 16-30, 202 Yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT, 34.8 QBR, 53.3 Comp %
  • Season Stats: 3,614 Yards, 34 TDs, 4 INTs, 86.2 QBR, 68.8 Comp %

4. Caleb Williams

  • Season Stats: 3,480 Yards, 33 TDs, 3 INTs, 85.3 QBR, 63.7 Comp %

5. Hendon Hooker

  • Season Stats: 3,135 Yards, 27 TDs, 2 INT, 89.6 QBR, 69.6 Comp %

No freshman has ever won the Heisman trophy, and while it's unlikely that changes this year, Drake Maye has the stats to back up his bid. The Heisman race will be decided this week in Columbus as Blake Corum and CJ Stroud face off in an electrifying matchup. Unfortunately, Hendon Hooker's injury tarnishes his chances for this award, but he will still be in New York for the ceremony.

Drake Maye and Max Duggan are on fire leading their teams to a combined 20-2 record heading into the final week. Caleb Williams overtakes Hendon Hooker for #4 due to injury, unfortunately ending Hooker's hopes of another prestigious award. Look out for Caleb Williams to move into the top 3 shortly and give the frontrunners some competition.

3. Israel Abanikanda

Junior, Pittsburgh

  • Week 12 Stats: 17 Carries, 113 Yards, 1 TD, 6.6 YPC
  • Season Stats: 224 Carries, 1,320 Yards, 18 TDs, 5.9 YPC

4. Mohamed Ibrahim

  • Week 12 Stats: 17 Carries, 70 Yards, 0 TDs, 4.1 YPC
  • Season Stats: 270 Carries, 1,323 Yards, 14 TDs, 4.9 YPC

The finalists are set, in my opinion; however, the order of the top five can still change. Illinois and Chase Brown lost against Michigan, but the Junior Back dominated a tough defense with a worse offensive line. Brown is back in the lead, but Blake Corum is still on his tail.

Jalin Hyatt is unstoppable and putting up similar numbers to Devonta Smith in 2020. Due to his injury, Jordan Addison falls out of the top 5 but is still a name to watch. My finalists are set for this award.
