With only a couple of months left until the end of the regular season, my list of the top 25 NCAA quarterbacks is getting more and more interesting. I still think Case Keenum deserves to be top guy. I have absolutely no consideration of the teams’ W-L records and team expectations, but when it comes to Mr. Keenum, I guess I will a little bit. He’s led the Houston Cougars to a 6-1 record, and should be placed in the top 15 in any polls. Houston has the best team in Conference USA and it’s not even close, mainly because of Mr. Keenum’s arm. He’s thrown for over 2,700 yards and 20 touchdown passes. No other quarterback can say that they’ve done wither of those things. Right now, Case still deserves to be in the top spot, but guys like Max Hall, Tyler Sheehan and Tim Hiller aren’t too far behind.

Here’s how I see the Top 25 NCAA quarterbacks as we look ahead to week nine:

1. Case Keenum (Houston): 241-344, 2,734 passing yards, 20 TDS, 4 INTs

2. Tyler Sheehan (Bowling Green): 255-392, 2,678 passing yards, 15 TDS, 5 INTs

3. Max Hall (BYU): 170-247, 2,231 passing yards, 17 TDS, 11 INTs

4. Tim Hiller (Western Michigan): 209-335, 2,263 passing yards, 15 TDS, 7 INTs

5. Todd Reesing (Kansas): 185-285, 2,204 passing yards, 15 TDS, 7 INTs

 


6. Jerrod Johnson (Texas A&M): 167-284, 2,131 passing yards, 17 TDS, 3 INTs


7. Christian Ponder (Florida State): 180-257, 2,176 passing yards, 12 TDS, 1 INT


8. Taylor Potts (Texas Tech): 184-271, 2,127 passing yards, 15 TDS, 8 INTs


9. Levi Brown (Troy): 166-257, 2,148 passing yards, 10 TDS, 4 INTs


10. Nathan Enderle (Idaho): 136-214, 2,077 passing yards, 13 TDS, 7 INTs


11. Jimmy Clausen (Notre Dame): 150-230, 2,050 passing yards, 16 TDS, 2 INTs


12. Joey Elliott (Purdue): 174-287, 2,022 passing yards, 14 TDS, 10 INTs


13. Ryan Lindley (San Diego State): 141-154, 1,889 passing yards, 17 TDS, 10 INTs
