CFB analyst releases updated Heisman Hype rankings through Week 11
CBS Sports analyst Dennis Dodd released his post-Week 11 rankings for the Heisman Trophy, the most prestigious award in college football.
According to Dodd, 2 B1G players are within the top 5 for the award: Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud and Michigan RB Blake Corum. Dodd had Stroud at No. 1 and Corum at No. 5.
Here are Dodd’s remaining picks.

Of course, all of Dodd’s inclusions other than Corum are running backs. It’s seemed to be a tight race between Stroud and Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker for most of the year, with neither seeming to have a notable lead through Week 11.
It’s not hard to see why Dodd has Stroud first, though. The Ohio State QB has thrown for 2,750 yards, 34 touchdowns and 4 interceptions this season through 11 games.
Corum is starting to put his name into contention, too. The star Michigan RB has 1,349 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns.
