2021 Week 12 Heisman Rankings
Spread the love

Signs continue to point toward a Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts photo finish to the Heisman finish line. However, we were reminded this weekend that this is certainly more than a two-person race. Let’s see who made a strong impression in our week four 2019 Heisman rankings.

Now, Joe Burrow continued to pile up the touchdowns in another offensive explosion by LSU. And, we see the latest and greatest Washington State quarterback in Anthony Gordon hit the rankings. But, nobody made a bigger jump in our poll this week than Jonathan Taylor after a 200-yard performance against Michigan. Now, let’s see where the chips fall in our week four 2019 Heisman rankings.

Top Five Candidates

1. Tua Tagovailoa

QB | Alabama                                                           Next Game: 9/28 vs Ole Miss

Tagovailoa continued his torrid start to the season by throwing five touchdown passes in consecutive games. He now has 17 touchdown passes without an interception. The Tide jump back into conference play as they host Ole Miss. Last week, Mississippi gave up 357 yards and four touchdowns to Cal quarterback Chase Garbers.

2. Jalen Hurts

QB | Oklahoma                                                      Next Game: 9/28 vs Texas Tech

Hurts had the week off to obviously see how many times he could get a “rat poison” reference in. All sarcasm aside, the senior clearly thinks the offense can and will get better. That’s a scary proposition for the rest of the Big 12. The conference season begins in Norman as Hurts will entertain Texas Tech.

3. Joe Burrow

QB | LSU                                                      Next Game: 10/05 vs Utah State

Burrow has the LSU Tigers offense averaging nearly 58 points a game. That’s unheard of for a team that traditionally relies on their defense and running game. The Tigers may have their best quarterback in school history this season. Last week against Vanderbilt, he threw for six scores and 398 yards in the air.

4. Jonathan Taylor

RB | Wisconsin                                                      Next Game: 9/28 vs Northwestern

Taylor jumps back into our top five with a dominant performance against Michigan. And, Taylor isn’t flashy and won’t wow you with athleticism but he’s as consistent as they come. Taylor could have the opportunity to become the leading rusher in the history of the game after this season. Even so, he returns home to face Northwestern this weekend.

5. Justin Fields

QB | Ohio State                                                      Next Game: 9/28 at Nebraska

Fields has continued to be very efficient with the football. This season, 20% of his completions have gone for touchdowns. That’s right on par with our leader. In fact, all of his scores this week came in the second quarter of play in a 76-5 victory. Now, Fields travels to Lincoln to face the Cornhuskers in the biggest game of the weekend.
