This college football season has involved some quarterbacks so far. I’ve seen most of these guys play and the rest I know I don’t even have to see, I can just look at their numbers and look at the teams that they play for and know that they have great talent. The best QB I’ve seen play this year is Houston Cougars QB Case Keenum. This guy should be a high consideration for the Heisman Trophy. Without him, Houston would definitely not have five wins to this point. I know you could also say that for other quarterbacks too, but Keenum has only played in six games and he’s already thrown for over 2,400 yards and 19 touchdowns. Other great quarterbacks from not-so-popular teams include Bowling Green’s Tyler Sheehan, Western Michigan’s Tim Hiller, and Toledo’s Aaron Opelt. Regardless of which team they play for, here are my top 25 NCAA quarterbacks that have played this year so far.

1. Case Keenum (Houston): 2,464 passing yards, 19 touchdowns

2. Max Hall (BYU): 2,069 passing yards, 16 touchdowns

3. Tyler Sheehan (Bowling Green): 2,337 passing yards, 14 touchdowns

4. Todd Reesing (Kansas): 1,954 passing yards, 15 touchdowns

5. Jerrod Johnson (Texas A&M): 1,893 passing yards, 16 touchdowns

6. Joey Elliott (Purdue): 1,856 passing yards, 14 touchdowns

7. Jimmy Clausen (Notre Dame): 1,804 passing yards, 14 touchdowns

8. Tim Hiller (Western Michigan): 1,913 passing yards, 13 touchdowns

9. Aaron Opelt (Toledo): 1,784 passing yards, 14 touchdowns

10. Taylor Potts (Texas Tech): 1,817 passing yards, 13 touchdowns
