1. Mac Jones – QB, Alabama
For the first time in the 2020 CFB season, a new face has taken the top spot in the Heisman power rankings. Alabama’s Mac Jones has surpassed Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence after leading the Crimson Tide to a perfect 6-0 record. Jones, a 6-foot-3 Junior from Jacksonville, Florida, has led Alabama to become the number one ranked team. Though the Crimson Tide had a bye week, Jones looks to bring his 2,196 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and a near-perfect 95.4 QBR into their remaining four matchups. The versatile pocket-passer holds his goals high, as he looks to bring Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide to their sixth CFB playoff in seven years.
2. Trevor Lawrence – QB, Clemson
Due to a positive COVID-19 case, America’s Quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, has been inactive in the previous two matchups, a 34-28 win vs Boston College and 47-40 loss at (4) Notre Dame. Without his presence under center, Clemson looks like an unranked team. Falling short in a must-win matchup with true Freshman DJ Uiagalelei against Notre Dame, the Tigers dropped to number four in the AP Poll rankings. Hoping for a return next Saturday, the projected number one overall pick will look to get back on track against Florida State and continue his Heisman push.
3. Zach Wilson – QB, BYU
Keep sleeping on Zach Wilson.
Scorching number 21 ranked Boise State, 51-17, Zach Wilson and the Cougars proved they are an elite team in College Football. Adding towards his Heisman-esque 2020 season, Wilson completed 21-of-27 passes, 359 passing yards and two touchdowns in the winning effort. The 6-foot-3 Junior brings a versatile and efficient presence to BYU’s offense. Ranking top-10 in the nation in passing yards, touchdowns and QBR, Wilson needs to be brought in the conversations with Quarterbacks such as Lawrence, Jones, Fields and Trask. Projected to be a top selection off the board in the upcoming draft, Wilson has the film and numbers to prove pivotal.
4. Justin Fields – QB, Ohio State
In a strong winning effort, Justin Fields and the Buckeyes bolted past Rutgers this past weekend, 49-27. Fields was dialed in all game, as he scorched the dismantled Scarlet Knights’ defense throwing for 314 yards and five touchdowns. The highly-regarded draft prospect has led Ryan Day’s third-ranked Buckeyes to a flawless 3-0 start. Projected to go undefeated for the remainder of the season, it would come as no surprise if Fields leads Ohio State to a CFB playoff run. Next week, the Heisman hopeful will lead his team into College Park to face Maryland. A Quarterback battle between Fields and Tagovailoa will be in store next Saturday afternoon.
5. Kyle Trask – QB, Florida
Outlasting Stetson Bennett IV and the Georgia Bulldogs in a 44-28 victory, Kyle Trask continued his electric season under center. Leading the eighth-ranked Florida Gators to a 4-1 record, Trask has thrown no less than four touchdowns and 260 yards in a game. wow. The Senior from Manvel, Texas, leads the nation in touchdowns with 22, and ranks fourth in QBR with 92.9. Cruising with no storm so far this season, Trask’s toughest competition is behind him as he looks to extend the Gators’ perfect season. Controlling the gears behind the first-placed SEC East Gators, Trask will focus on leading the Gators to a potential CFB Playoff.
