Week Six was full of defining moments for many players. However, only a few of those players have been consistently at the top of the stat sheets week in and week out. Here is SSN's official Heisman Rankings following a wild Week 6 in college football.
1. Kenneth Walker III (RB, Michigan State) ⬆️1
Kenneth Walker had another monster game--this time with Rutgers as his victim. That included a “Heisman-esque” 94-yard touchdown run when he waved goodbye to the Rutgers defense & shook his teammates hand on his way into the end zone. Walker III has been the frontrunner for some time, and now he's just showing off.
2. Bijan Robinson (RB, Texas) ⬆️1
Bijan Robinson had a few big runs this weekend in Texas’ shootout loss to Oklahoma. Robinson continued his monster season by rushing for 137 yards and a score.
3. Bryce Young (QB, Alabama) ⬇️2
Bryce Young did't have a bad game against Texas A&M, but anytime a Heisman candidate loses and doesn't have a huge game is a serious knock. Alabama's offensive line really struggled throughout the contest, and the early deficit put Young in far too many predictable passing situations. Nonetheless, Bryce Young is still one of the heavyweights in this fight.
4. Matt Corral (QB, Ole Miss) ↔️
Matt Corral didn’t have a huge game through the air against Arkansas, but he showed his ability to tuck and run on a multitude of occasions, and most importantly led his side to the victory. Corral still has yet to thrown an interception this season.
5. Kenny Pickett (QB, Pitt) ⬆️1
Kenny Pickett has quietly carried Pitt to a solid 4-1 start to the season. He is 2nd in the country in passer rating & has thrown 19 TDs versus only 1 interception. Pickett is one of the most reliable & experienced QBs in the nation at this point in his career, and has the opportunity to lead Pitt to the ACC Championship game as a seasoned veteran.
Honorable Mentions: Brennan Armstrong, Grayson McCall, Desmond Ridder
