How Bo Nix’s 5-TD performance compared to other Heisman contenders in Week 10

It was another productive day for Bo Nix and the Oregon Ducks on Saturday.

Not only did the team win big against the Colorado Buffaloes, 49-10, but Nix was also able to strengthen his Heisman Trophy resume in a major way, adding 5 more touchdowns to his season total, two of which came on the ground, and one of which he got in the receiving game.

At this point in the year, Nix’s Heisman case is growing incredibly strong. He’s been playing at a high enough level for long enough that even the biggest doubters are growing unable to ignore the success. If the Ducks continue to win, expect Nix’s name to continue to generate buzz.

While this run continues, we want to take a chance every week to look in and see how Nix’s performance compared to other Heisman candidates across the nation. Here’s how the Oregon QB fared this week in comparison to the rest:
