1. Dak Prescott, Junior Quarterback, Mississippi State Bulldogs

Last Game: 18-for-27 (66.7%), 331 Yards, 1 TD, 2 INT’s; 13 Carries for 61 Yards (Defeated Arkansas Razorbacks 17-10)

2014 Season: 132-for-216 (61.1%), 2,025 Yards; 137 Carries for 725 Yards; 26 Total TD’s, 7 INT’s

You know you’re the top dog in the Heisman race when you throw for 331 yards and rush for another 61 yards in a close divisional win against a good team, but everybody is talking about how bad of a game you played. That’s what the case was for Dak Prescott on Saturday.

Playing with an injury and struggling early, Prescott still managed to help lead his team to victory the way a champion does throughout the course of the season. If anything, Saturday’s performance further cemented Prescott’s spot atop the Heisman race right now. We refuse to knock him off of the top of the list when he totals 392 yards in a win. That is just ridiculous.

The Heisman trophy remains Prescott’s to lose, as he has loaded up on stats and is leading an undefeated team through the toughest division in college football history. That’s enough for us. And it should be enough for everybody else.

If anybody is ahead of Prescott on anybody’s list right now, it would be an absolute travesty.
