Updated Heisman Trophy rankings following Week 9 of college football

In most cases, the Heisman Trophy is a quarterback award.

Alabama quarterback Bryce Young looks to repeat in 2022, but he has stiff competition from Ohio State’s CJ Stroud and Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker.

But let’s not forget about Michigan running back Blake Corum, who has been on an absolute tear this season.

Also high up in the rankings is Tennessee wide receiver Jalin Hyatt, who has 519 yards and 9 touchdowns in his last three games.

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers moved up in the rankings as well after a 154 yards, 1 touchdown performance over Florida.
