    Three Buckeyes (and one former Buckeye) make Joel Klatt's top-10 Heisman list:

    Klatt must have missed Shea Patterson's name......

    It has turned into the award for best QB on the best team in recent years. I might put Chase Young a spot or two higher but overall, I can't argue with it too much. Lots of great seasons happening right now.....

    I really want to see Chase make it as a finalist. He's the most dominant DL since Suh

    From last week: +2
    If there’s a defensive player as of late to have a shot at the Heisman, it truly is Young, as he’s been absolutely dominant through six weeks of action for the Buckeyes. By large sum, the Buckeyes are the best team in the country, and the best player on the field resides on their defense in Young. He’s contributed 29 total pressures, including nine sacks, two QB hits and 18 QB hurries — but it’s how he’s done it that is truly remarkable. It doesn’t matter whether he’s rushing from the left of the right side of the defensive line, he’s just as dominant, gaining 17 pressures from the left and 12 from the right. Additionally, he leads the country by winning 36.9% of his pass-rushing snaps this year, beating 19 more defenders than his stat sheet says. If he keeps this up, we’ll see him win some hardware in New York.

    From last week: -1
    Fields threw his first interception of the season against Michigan State and had arguably his roughest outing from a passing standpoint against the Spartans. Good thing for the Buckeyes is that the best defenses in the Big Ten were on display, as Ohio State and Michigan State represent No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in terms of our Big Ten ELO defensive rankings — so he’ll likely not face off against a better defense all season long. He has a Friday night showdown with Northwestern looming after a bye week to showcase that he can move on from his lowest-graded outing.

    From last week: +2
    Dobbins trails only Taylor in terms of yards per attempt among running backs with at least 100 carries, averaging 7.1 yards per attempt and gaining 826 yards on 116 carries through six games. He’s rattled off just six touchdowns on the ground but has 34 additional first-down carries and is gaining 4.44 yards after contact on the ground per attempt. He’s well on his way to a career year in every major rushing category, which would be just another 1,000-plus yard season, 40-plus missed tackles forced and nearly 1,000 yards after contact. Not bad for a guy who’s the third member of the Buckeyes on this list.

    Heisman Five

    Joe Burrow cemented his spot at the top with a solid game against Auburn's stout defense Saturday, but there's a new name making his way toward the top of the rankings.

    1. Burrow, LSU

    It wasn't his typical offensive fireworks, but Burrow completed 32 of 42 passes for 321 yards against one of the toughest defensive fronts in the country. That's enough to stay No. 1.

    2. Chase Young, Ohio State

    He hasn't been listed on the board at Caesars all season, but that should change. Young was dominant against Wisconsin on Saturday -- he recorded six tackles (five for a loss), four sacks and forced two fumbles. He's quite possibly the best all-around player in college football.

    3. Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

    He didn't play Saturday as he is recovering from an ankle injury. The bigger question is whether he can get back for the game against LSU on Nov. 9. Without that, it's going to be hard to win the Heisman -- or for Bama to beat the Tigers.

    4. Justin Fields, Ohio State

    Two players from the Buckeyes? It's hard to argue with either performance. His line -- 12-of-22 for 167 yards and two TD passes -- won't wow anyone, but given that it came in dreadful conditions against one of the country's better defenses offers more evidence that Fields belongs on the short list of best QBs in the country.

    5. Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma

    He accounted for four touchdowns and nearly 500 yards, but it wasn't enough to keep Oklahoma's playoff chances from being put on life support.

    So having 3 of the top 5 Heisman guys is good right?

    I mean it's no win over Notre Dame but OSU is still sort of good at football this year, no?

    Sadly, since the Heisman is a fraudulent award, those are probably accurate. The "Most Outstanding Player" label for this award is a joke. Joe Burrow has been outstanding this year, as has Hurts and a few others. But QBs putting up video game numbers is commonplace nowadays. Nobody is doing, or has done, what Chase Young is doing on defense in a very long time. If he ends up with 25+ tfl, 20+ sacks and keeps up the strip sacks on what could end up the nation's best defense, he should win it. If he doesn't at least get an invite to NY, it's a complete joke.

    At least Chase will win the Outland (best interior lineman); Lombardi (best lineman or linebacker), Bednarik (best defensive player), Nagurski (best defensive player), and Hendricks (best defensive end).

    The Maxwell Award (best player) voters like to be contrarian, so maybe they would give it to Young.
