2010 Heisman Hopefuls XII

Top 10

1. Cameron Newton (QB - Auburn) - Despite allegations, Newton continues to lead the Auburn Tigers to success as he ran for 151 rush yards and 2 TDs in a victory against Georgia. He also completed 12 of 15 passed and tacked on 148 yards passing yards to go along with 2 more passing TDs. His four total touchdown were crucial in defeating UGA.

2. LaMichael James (RB - Oregon) - James had his lowest rush total on the season as he carried the ball 29 times for 91 yards. James also kept his streak of receptions going as he caught 2 more passes. James is now a serious duel threat which makes him a formidible player to have to line-up against.

3. Kellen Moore (QB - Boise St.) - Moore had another fair statisitcal game as he struggles to stay in the top tier of the Heisman race. He had 216 passing yards and 3 passing TDs.

4. Andrew Luck (QB - Stanford) - Luck had an exceptional game in a close victory against Arizona State. He threw for 292 yards. Luck also finished with an extremely efficient completion percentage of 80.8% completion.

5. Terrelle Pryor (QB - Ohio State) - The OSU running game was extremely successful against PSU over the weekend. Pryor accounted for 49 of the team's 314 rush yards against the Nitnay Lions. He also completed 8 of 13 for 139 yards and 2 TDs in the win.

6. Kendall Hunter (RB - Oklahoma St.) - Hunter contributed 116 yards and 2 TDs in a win versus Texas. Hunter is helping to spearhead this revived OKSU as one of senior leaders on the squad.

7. Justin Blackmon (WR - Oklahoma St.) - Blackmon has solidified himself as a serious Heisman contender as he caught 9 passes for 145 yards and 1 TD. Despite being suspended for a game, he remains the nation's top reciever by a fair margin.

8. Andy Dalton (QB - TCU) - Dalton was involved in a game that was too close for comfort against San Diego State. The Horned Frogs had a comfortably lead going into the fourth quarter, but found themsevles up only 40 to 35 with over four minutes remaining. The Horned Frogs were able to run out the clock to keep their undefeated season going. Dalton had an impressive game with 240 yards and 4 TDs.

9. John Clay (RB - Wisconsin) - Clay did not play in the routing of Indiana.Missed time may take Clay out of the Heisman race if he is not healthy. There is also no rush to bring him back injured as the Wisconsin run game has proven to be effective even without him.

10. Denard Robinson (QB - Michigan) - Robinson passed for 176 yards and 1 TD. The nation's second leading rusher also added 68 yards to his total as he helped lead Michigan to a victory against Purdue.
