ESPN updates Heisman Watch list ahead of Week 2
The Heisman race looks a little bit different than it did a week ago.
Following Week 1 action, ESPN recently updated its Heisman Watch list ahead of the second week of the season, and there’s been some noticeable changes, even in the B1G.
Two B1G names are still in the top 12 spots according to ESPN, but there’s been a swap to the list. Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, who threw for 313 yards and five touchdowns in the Buckeyes’ 77-31 win over Oregon State. He took the place of Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley after Penn State’s narrow win over Appalachian State.
Jonathan Taylor was still on the list and found himself in the top three again. The sophomore out of Wisconsin rushed for 145 yards and two touchdowns as the Badgers routed Western Kentucky 34-3.
Here’s the full list of 12 names on the Heisman Watch:
- Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
- Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
- Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
- Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
- McKenzie Milton, QB, UCF
- Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
- Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma
- Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
- Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
- Eric Dungey, QB, Syracuse
- Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
- Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
Taylor and Haskins will have the opportunity to impress their status on the Heisman Watch list again this weekend. Ohio State takes on Rutgers and Wisconsin hosts New Mexico.
