Ranking The Big Ten Heisman Candidates After Week Seven


After week 7 our front runner is still leading the pack and starting to pull away. Two of our candidates laid eggs on Saturday, while one is quietly having a stellar season.

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?

It’s time to assess things after week seven.

No. 4 – Trace McSorley – Penn State, QB

Ranking Last Week: 3

What You Need To Know

After a superhuman performance against Ohio State two weeks ago, McSorley looked very human facing a mediocre Michigan State team. Maybe we’ve come to expect too much from the all-time leading passer in Penn State history.

It’s always a let down to lose a big game at home on primetime, but you’ve got to be ready to play the next game, especially coming off a bye week. Penn State was still very much in the playoff conversation until coming out flat against Sparty Saturday afternoon.

McSorley’s performance will make it difficult for him to get back into serious Heisman discussion.
