The Heisman race is still Lamar Jackson and everyone else, but he will get his biggest test yet this coming week and maybe Deshaun Watson resurfaces back in the picture...
Donnel Pumphrey, San Diego State, RB
The Aztecs haven't faced tough defenses, but this guy deserves the spotlight. He leads the nation with 200 rushing yards per game, 55 more per game than anybody else
Derek Barnett, Tennessee, DE
Sometimes the junior D-lineman gets lost in all the attention that Texas A&M's Myles Garrett gets, but Barnett is special. He took over the Florida game and sparked the Vols amazing comeback with three TFLs, two sacks and three more QB hurries. UT's defensive coordinator Bob Shoop said Barnett put the program on his back. In 17 career SEC games, he has 30 TFLs and 19 sacks.
J.T. Barrett, Ohio State, QB
He's still rising high after last week's impressive showing in the romp at OU. On the year, his TD-INT ratio is 10-1 and he's also a dangerous runner and the triggerman behind an extremely young, but explosive team.

Christian McCaffrey, Stanford, RB/KR
The Cardinals had their hands full at UCLA but found a way to win late as he ran for 138 yards.
Lamar Jackson, Louisville, QB
There was no let-down for Jackson or the Cards with the sandwich game at Marshall. He threw for 417 yards in a rout. Next up: Clemson on the road. He's already produced a whopping 25 total TDs -- rushing and passing. That's more than seven teams had in all of 2015.
