College Football Rankings 2011: Heisman Watch for Week Six Top 25

Andrew Luck

The Heisman favorite has yet to disappoint in 2011. He completed 85% of his passes for three touchdowns against UCLA and had this incredible catch to boot. Next week he faces Colorado which, again, should not be much of a test. He’ll just need to keep putting up the same numbers he’s been having.

Trent Richardson

Richardson had an absolutely fantastic game against Florida, rushing for 181 yards and two touchdowns with 27 more yards through the air. Clearly his opener against Kent State was just one time thing.

Next week Alabama plays Vanderbilt and the Tide should win easily so he should get some big carries but not as many carries to avoid injury.

Kellen Moore

Moore looked very pedestrian against Nevada, throwing for just 142 yards with two interceptions and a completion percentage of 57%. Coming from Boise State and with the stiff competition this year, Moore can’t afford any other performances like that to still be considered a favorite.

Next week Boise plays Fresno State so hopefully his numbers will go back up to where they usually are.

Tyrann Mathieu

Ndamukong Suh came close to winning the Heisman in 2009 but Mathieu may just be the first defensive player to win the trophy since Charles Woodson.

He now holds the record for career forced fumbles at LSU with nine including four this season in addition to an interception. Next week the Tigers face off against No. 17 Florida and he could have a field day with a new quarterback.

Russell Wilson

Wilson is now officially one of the frontrunners for the award after showing he can dominate good opponents, throwing for 255 yards, two touchdowns and ran for 32 yards and another score. He has yet to have a completion percentage of under 70.

Wisconsin get Indiana for their sixth straight home game and Wilson should keep up those stats pretty easily.
