While it’s still a little early to say who the leader is for the Heisman trophy, here’s the top five we have after week 8.
1. Collin Klein, Kansas State
Stats: 10 passing touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 14 rushing touchdowns, 551 rushing (63rd), 1379 passing (85th), 2nd in passing efficiency, 32nd in total offense
Collin Klein has been soldering along at Kansas State with about 1/8th the amount of hype that any of the other 5 are getting. Klein’s numbers and the wins he’s led his team to show that he should be at the top of this list for the moment.
2. Geno Smith, West Virginia
Stats: 26 passing touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 1 rushing touchdowns, 2414 passing (2nd), 4th in passing efficiency, 5th in total offense
While Geno Smith’s last two games have been way short of spectacular, the first half of the season he was outstanding and you cannot ignore that. We have to remember that there is more football to be played and if Geno actually is a Heisman contender, West Virginia will hav...

Ordinarily, holding a team to 183 total yards is a good recipe for success. Ordinarily, allowing 55 points is not. Both of the teams that accomplished these feats lost on Saturday, and both losses are equally damaging. That’s proof that sometimes it doesn’t matter how you get there.South Carolina’s defense limited Florida to fewer than 100 passing and fewer than 100 yards...
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron had an almost flawless night in Neyland Stadium Saturday night as he threw for a career-high 306 yards. As teammate Michael Williams said, he's no longer a "game manager...he's learned to take over and lead us."
Amari Cooper caught two of A.J. McCarron's four touchdown passes Saturday as No. 1 Alabama defeated Tennessee 44-13 for its sixth consecutive victory over the Volunteers.
Cooper finished with seven receptions for 162 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown in the first quarter and a 42-yard score in the third. Cooper also had a 30-yard touchdown nullified by a penalty.
If Todd McShay had his way , the NFL would have to wait until 2014 for A.J. McCarron's bow tie awesomeness.
What does ESPN draft guru Todd McShay think of Alabama starting quarterback A.J. McCarron? He thinks the Crimson Tide QB is "underrated," that's what.
“He is probably the most underrated quarterback in college football today,” McShay said...

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Alabama may have a championship-caliber offense to go along with its best-in-the-nation defense.
A.J. McCarron threw four touchdown passes and passed for a career-high 306 yards Saturday as the top-ranked Crimson Tide trounced Tennessee 44-13 at Neyland Stadium. Freshman receiver Amari Cooper caught seven passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns, while freshman...
