After Week 3 of college football, there have been new Heisman contenders, but the frontrunners have shown no signs of slowing down.
Week 3 of college football has concluded, and it consisted of mind-blowing upsets. Most notably, No. 9 USC fell to Boston College and plummeted in the rankings.
No. 6 Georgia lost in a shootout to No. 24 South Carolina, who is gaining ground again after a blowout loss to Texas A&M.
The Heisman race also gained some new candidates that are sure to have serious dreams about attending New York in December.
Here are the top five Heisman candidates following Week 3 of college football action.
5. Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State
Florida State had their bye week, so Winston will not fall out of these rankings for now. However, he will need to have a huge game to have any chance of winning a second Heisman and staying in the Heisman watch. There are other candidates such as Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah, Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight and Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper who may be dark horses to win the award. Winston will have a prime opportunity to redeem himself as the Seminoles face No. 22 Clemson.
