Terrence Rodgers had just one year to make his impact after transferring from junior college and sitting behind Will Fuller. And yet, in that one year his performance has elevated him to the status of best runningback in school history, in the words of his own coach. Whereas Sean Bell shined for his explosiveness, Rodgers stands out for his extreme consistency. He's been at or above 5 yards per carry in every game but one, at or above 120 yards per game in every game but one, and he's found his way into the endzone rushing or receiving every game but none. It would be a disservice to say he's been having solid games every week--it's more accurate to say he's been an elite rusher in literally every game the Bulldogs have played this year.
 
Rodgers has been the engine driving the Misssissippi State offense, playing the role of workhouse and guaranteeing his team something to work on. The Bulldogs meanwhile continue to creep up the rankings, crawling up to #14 in the coaches' poll and the playoff committee rankings with an 8-2 record. With a Heisman candidate on both sides of the ball, don't be surprised to see Mississippi State make some last-minute noise.

The Heisman argument often comes down to the question of whether to honor a player having an outstanding individual season or the best player on the best team. Tanner Bowman asks, why not both? The Happy Valley junior has been lighting it up for the undefeated and top-ranked Nittany Lions, bringing back fond memories of 2015 Heisman winner Todd Jennings. He has the requisite stats, comparable to Graham Burnett with fewer interceptions. He's been held without a touchdown just twice all year, never been picked off more than once in a game, and he's always been able to rebound from any mistakes he's made.
 
What Bowman has that others don't, though, is the signature games. Three times this season, he's stood up and made it clear that he wasn't about to let his team lose. He threw for 377 yards in what would prove to be a pivotal early-season division matchup against Ohio State. He made Elijah Moffett look ordinary in a blowout of Rutgers last week. And his biggest moment of the season came in Charlotte on a 31-yard lob to Ricky Vega as time expired to lift Penn State to a 17-16 win over Georgia to preserve an undefeated start that continues to this day.

2019 Season // 8 INT, 36 Tackles, 3 TD
 
It takes a special player to make the Heisman watchlist as a free safety. But Aaron Blakely is a very special player. He anchors one of the best defenses in the country, a defense that ranks 8th in the country and second in the Big Ten in scoring defense. Blakely does a little bit of everything: he covers well downfield, he tackles well as a last line of defense, and--of course--he's a ballhawk. He had a four-game interception streak to start the season, he's recorded 8 total picks for the season, and he's run three of those back for touchdowns.
 
He makes the leap onto the watchlist this week for two reasons. First is his body of work: that 8th pick is enough to tie him for the single-season record for interceptions by a free safety. Second is the Heisman moment: in a deadlocked game on a rainy day on the road in Iowa, with less than five minutes to play, Blakely intercepted Mikeal Black and returned it for the decisive score to win the game. He didn't do the Heisman pose, but I suppose we can forgive him for that as long as he continues to be the best free safety in the game.

It's tricky to stop this guy (to stop this guy) who throws on time, Luke Trickett! Run DMC references aside, the sophomore scrambler has been one of the biggest reasons that USC's still very much in playoff contention despite their week 12 blowout loss to Auburn. Don't let the scrambler tag trick you into thinking Trickett can't throw: he's averaging 312 yards per game on nearly 65% passing and didn't commit a turnover until week 11. He comes with a bit of a warning label, in that he's committed two per game since then. But zooming out, his entire body of work for the season is competitive with any of the other Heisman candidates out there.
 
Trickett's accounted for 300 yards or more in 7 out of 9 games, and he's accounted for 3 touchdowns or more in 6 out of 9. He put together two of his best games of the season when it mattered most: 345 total yards and 3 touchdowns on 66.7% passing and 7.1 yards per carry in a blowout of now-#9 Oregon, as well as 418 total yards and 3 touchdown (all passing) on 80.6% passing and 9.5 yards per carry in a Week 6 blowout of a Colorado team that's lost one game since then. The precocious sophomore has the keys to an offense that's scoring 30.6 points per game--and USC fans would be happy to keep it that way through 2021.

+1 Storm for the Run reference...and thanks for stepping up to do these. 

One request: Heisman odds at present. I love seeing those. 

If I had a vote today, my top 5 would be:

1) Rodgers

2) Bowman

3) Bell

4) Robinson

5) Burnett

Because I wouldn't even bregrudgingly vote for a Badger. (I would, did even for Sowell, but don't think Blakely should be in there...)
