Each week we’ll take a look at the Heisman front-runners from the Big Ten. Who’s stock is rising, who’s falling, and what conference star has the best chance to be named the best player in college football?

No. 4 – David Blough – Purdue, QB

Ranking Last Week: Unranked

What You Need To Know

Fifth year senior David Blough became the Boilermakers’ starter in week three after Elijah Sindelar suffered a mid-week injury. He doesn’t look like he wants to give the job back.

In his first start of the year, Blough set a school record, throwing for 572 yards and accounting for four total touchdowns in a close loss to Missouri. The Boiler QB followed up that performance with a 296 yard, three touchdown performance in an upset win over ranked Boston College.

He continued his precision passing Saturday in a victory over Nebraska on the road, and moves into the top four of our Big Ten Heisman discussion.
