Top Candidates

QB Bryce Young – Alabama, Soph.
First year starter has taken SEC by storm. Two late SEC games vs Arkansas and Auburn may determine his chances.

QB CJ Stroud – Ohio State, Fr.
Freshman starter performed well vs a soft early schedule. Finishes vs three top Big Ten clubs, Purdue, Michigan St and Michigan puts him center stage.

RB Kenneth Walker III – Michigan State, Jr.
Big athletic runner has been dominant in the Big Ten. His final two games vs Ohio St and Penn St. gives him a change to make a final statement.

QB Caleb Williams – Oklahoma, Fr.
Freshman starter took over early this season and never looked back. Gets three big late games vs Baylor, Iowa St and Oklahoma that gives him a chance to move to the top of this list.

QB Kenny Pickett – Pittsburgh, Sr.
Record setting senior has directed a potent offense vs top clubs. Maybe got on the radar late but completing an impressive final season.

QB Matt Corral – Ole Miss, Jr.
Slick throwing junior had a strong first half. Late season injury may be hurt his chances, though a late test vs Texas A&M could change that.
