Published Sep. 13, 2019

1. LSU quarterback Joe Burrow

His 219.11 passing efficiency is No. 2 nationally and earned the top spot thanks to his big win at Texas.

2. Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts

Averaging an absurd 12.52 yards per play and can pad his numbers against Chip Kelly’s lowly Bruins.

3. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa

Maybe he finally gets a test this week at South Carolina?

4. Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor

Ranks second nationally with five rushing touchdowns (two at USF and three against Jim McElwain’s Chippewas).

5. Florida State running back Cam Akers

Unless FSU somehow rebounds, he won’t win. But he leads the nation with 376 yards from scrimmage and deserves a spot on the list.
