Heisman Trophy Race After Week 5


3. QB Will Grier, West Virginia

While it wasn’t quite a complete game – the offense stalled a bit in the second half – Grier did enough early on to push West Virginia to 4-0 with a 42-34 win over Texas Tech.

The offense came into the season expected to put up big numbers, and Grier and company aren’t disappointing, with 332 passing yards or more in each of the four games – and they’re not just from dinking and dunking.

Grier threw for 370 yards and three scores against the Red Raiders, and on the road, not throwing any interceptions mattered as the game got tighter.

And now, he’s completing 72% of his passes on the year for almost 1,500 yards and 17 touchdowns and three picks, averaging close to 11 yards per pass.

His pass rating of 200.75 is better than what Baker Mayfield ended with last year, but two guys are blowing that away.
