Week 5 Heisman HYPE Rakings


Rank Previous Rank Name Position School
1 4 Saquon Barkley RB Penn State
2 2 Jake Browning QB Washington
3 1 Baker Mayfield QB Oklahoma
4 7 Luke Falk QB Washington State
5 3 Sam Darnold QB USC
6 8 Lamar Jackson QB Louisville
7 5 Trace McSorley QB Penn State
8 9 Josh Rosen QB UCLA
9 NR Bryce Love RB Stanford
10 10 Nick Chubb RB Georgia

There was a lot of movement in the top 5, with Barkley moving up to #1 after his do-it-all performance against Indiana. Sam Darnold’s performance in USC’s loss to Washington State (in what I picked to be the game of the week) caused him to slip down to #5; that same game catapulted Luke Falk up to #4. Baker Mayfield slipped to #3 just because of OU’s bye this week, but don’t expect to see him fall out of the top 5 if he continues to play at the level he has been. Bryce Love cracked the top 10 after an impressive performance in Stanford’s win over Arizona State in which he ran for 301 yards, breaking Christian McCaffrey’s school single-game rushing yardage record. We’re getting into the thick of conference play this next few weeks, so expect to see some more movement in the rankings. See you soon.
