Ranking Heisman Contenders' Performances After Week 8 of College Football

Prior to the start of the 2019 season, it seemed impossible that anyone not named Tua Tagovailoa or Trevor Lawrence would win the Heisman Trophy.

But after Week 8, we have some major shakeups at the top. LSU breakout quarterback Joe Burrow now leads the pack after picking apart Mississippi State.

Tagovailoa also slipped behind Jalen Hurts after suffering an ankle injury that knocked him out of the second half of Alabama's victory over Tennessee. Lawrence's odds have dipped far enough that he's now a longshot to get back into the race. 

Remember, the following rankings are a reflection of what happened in Week 8―nothing more, nothing less. The lowest-ranked player isn't necessarily in danger of leaving the pack, though that happens to be the case this week.

Factors used to shape the order include individual production, key plays, team success and competition level. Accompanying odds are accurate as of Monday and courtesy of Caesar's.
