We were wondering when a shakeup in the Heisman race might come, and we got one in Week 8. Oh, did we ever.
Our two Heisman front-runners battled it out in Morgantown, West Virginia, and the result was rather one-sided.

A handful of big-time games are set for Week 9. Before we close the book and begin to look ahead, however, let’s take a look at the updated—and much different-looking, I might add—Heisman power rankings.
