XN Sports Heisman Watch: Mariota On Top, Gurley Out Of Top 5

Marcus Mariota

Marcus Mariota is back on top of the watch and Georgia RB Todd Gurley is out of the top five in this weeks XN Sports Heisman Watch.

Mariota continues to put up big numbers while leading Oregon back into the national playoff picture. Gurley will likely be sidelined until Georgia meets Auburn in a couple weeks and by that time he will have missed four games and fallen behind the field.

Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott remains near the top of the watch list while Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon joins it.

XN Sports will take a look each week at who is in the Heisman running, who is knocking on the door, and who is under the radar but deserves a long look.

Here’s week 5 of the Watch.
