8. BAYLOR WR COREY COLEMAN
Saturday demonstrated the pitfalls of being a wide receiver in pursuit of the Heisman, and shed some light into why only two have ever won the award.
Corey Coleman’s best game in a remarkable 2015 season preceded his worst. He caught just three passes for 34 yards, but Coleman’s performance was a reflection of the struggles BU faced with a true freshman quarterback against a superior defense.
7. STANFORD RB CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY
Stanford may have lost a 38-36 heartbreaker to Oregon in Week 11, but Christian McCaffrey had arguably his most impressive game of the season.
Pertinent to his Heisman candidacy, McCaffrey’s 147-yard rushing, 42-yard receiving came with Stanford playing in a prominent kickoff window on Fox.
McCaffrey’s 2015 is written in the Stanford record books, and he has plenty more opportunity to add to his record-setting output.
Christian McCaffrey has already broken @StanfordFball record for all purpose yards … and there are at least 3 games left.
