10. OREGON RB ROYCE FREEMAN

Royce Freeman fell out of the Heisman Top 10 amid Oregon’s early-season free-fall, but the sophomore running back kept grinding it out. In fact, aside from his 92-yard performance at Michigan State 77 yards in the Utah debacle, Freeman’s reached the century mark in every outing. He’s averaging 6.64 yards per carry for 1,706 in total with 14 touchdowns, and another 325 yards and two scores receiving.

Oregon’s return to prominence, coinciding with quarterback Vernon Adams’ recovery from a broken finger, should give Freeman some of the attention his impressive season deserves.

9. OKLAHOMA RB SAMAJE PERINE

Samaje Perine’s monster second-half of the season is easily overshadowed by the eye-popping stats teammate Baker Mayfield is putting up. But make no mistake, Perine has been one of the nation’s premier running backs for the last month-and-a-half or so.

He saved the best for last, wrecking shop against Oklahoma State to the tune of 131 yards on just 17 carries, two of which went for touchdowns.
