Last season, Louisville Cardinals QB Lamar Jackson ran away with the Heisman Trophy. This year, Jackson is still very much alive when it comes to taking home the Heisman hardware … but the race remains wide open.
So much can happen now until someone is actually crowned the Heisman winner; however, let’s rank the top five contenders entering Week 5 of the 2017 college football season.
Note: Once again, so much can happen now until the season is in the books (I can’t stress that enough), meaning players will emerge, and others will fall. Players like Mason Rudolph, Luke Falk and Jalen Hurts (just to name a few) could skyrocket to the top of the Heisman board in no time as well.
