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?

How does it all shake out after a crazy week 8?

No. 4 – Rondale Moore – Purdue, WR

What You Need To Know

Rondale Moore is electric. Anyone who watched the Ohio State Purdue game on Saturday night saw exactly what we mean.

Moore is clearly quarterback David Blough’s favorite target and looks for him often. And with good reason. The freshman wide receiver is lighting quick which enables him to find open space. Once the ball is in his hands, hold on to your hat as Moore can break a big one at any moment.

Rondale Moore may not be in serious Heisman contention this season, but he’s going to be in the mix for the next couple years.
