The 10th installment of our SEC Heisman Watch features several players, including two defenders, with starpower:


  • Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State: The Heisman frontrunner managed the first 300-yard passing game of this career, but it was an overall downgrade from his previous star-quality outings this season. The Bulldogs scored fewer than 34 points for the first time against Arkansas and Prescott turned it over twice (interceptions).
  • Nick Marshall, QB, Auburn: Limited to just 50 yards (and two touchdowns) on the ground against Ole Miss, Marshall threw for a season-high 254 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Tigers to their best win of the season. Marshall’s tallied eight total touchdowns over his last two SEC starts since a loss at Mississippi State.
  • Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama: Cooper had a week off to prep for Saturday’s showdown at LSU and is vying for his seventh 100-yard game in nine starts this season. His nine touchdown receptions lead the SEC.


  • Josh Robinson, RB, Mississippi State: Robinson scored a rushing touchdown for the seventh straight game but did most of his damage on the receiving end against Arkansas, catching a season-high six passes for 110 yards.
  • Senquez Golson, DB, Ole Miss: Another start, another interception for the Rebels’ top defensive back. Late in Saturday’s loss to Auburn, Golson had a chance at a nation-tying 10th pick but Nick Marshall’s pass went off his hands into Sammie Coates’ mitts for a first down.
  • Shane Ray, DE, Mizzou: The junior pass rusher with freakish athleticism set a new single-season Mizzou sack record (12) with two during Saturday’s win over Kentucky. He’s a projected first-round pick and has been a terror to block this fall.
