After Week 5 of college football, the Heisman field continues to be competitive with many candidates even though the frontrunners remain the same.
Week 5 of college football has come to a close, and more upsets occurred as South Carolina fell to Missouri, who had previously been upset by Indiana.
There were also plenty of exciting games, such as an overtime match between Texas A&M and Arkansas and a game featuring a North Carolina State team who was upset-minded against Florida State.
Although the favorites have not done anything to lose ground in their campaigns, the race remains wide open.
Here are the top five candidates for this prestigious award after five weeks of college football.
5. Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama
Alabama had a bye week, but this doesn’t make the star wide receiver any less of a Heisman candidate than he already is. Cooper has caught 43 passes for 655 yards and five touchdowns, and he made himself an even more serious candidate against Florida when he finished with 201 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
His performance has helped quarterback Blake Sims show steady improvement in the Crimson Tide offense, and he is on pace to shatter his previous career-high numbers.
Stats: 43 receptions, 655 receiving yards, 5 touchdowns
