Nick Shepkowski's Heisman Trophy rankings through Week 5

Five weeks of college football are already in the books on the 2022 season ,

as matchups continue to get better and shape what the postseason will look like.  

Some teams seems like guarantees to make the College Football Playoff while

some very intriguing division races are shaping up in several different conferences.

What about the most famous individual award in college sports, though?  

Has it already been won and we just have to wait for the ceremony?

That’s not the case just yet although through five weeks one name has really begun to run away from the pack in our College Wire Heisman Poll.

Just Missed (1/2): Will Anderson, Jr. - Alabama Anderson hasn’t put up the same numbers as he did a year ago 

but he’s again been stellar as he’s pulled down five sacks and has recorded a pick-six on the year.

Just Missed (2/2): Blake Corum - Michigan Michigan played a joke of a schedule the first three games as the Wolverines easily disposed of Colorado State,

Hawai’i, and UConn to start the year but Corum has been huge two games into Big Ten play as well,

going for 376 rushing yards and three touchdowns over the last two weeks against Maryland and Iowa.

3. Chase Brown - Illinois Illinois is five games into 2022 and Chase Brown has gone over the 100-yard mark five times.

His 733 rushing yards are the most of anyone in the country and he’s exactly

 the kind of player that the Illini offense needs in terms of their game plan (think Wisconsin before the last couple years).
