There is a new team at the top of my ballot.
Oklahoma took over the No. 1 spot after thrashing Ohio State 31-16 on the road Saturday night. The Sooners were no match for the Buckeyes last season, but this game was very different and showed what new coach Lincoln Riley can accomplish with this group.
Baker Mayfield looked like the Heisman frontrunner throwing for 386 yards and three touchdowns.
Oklahoma also played well on defense, limiting Ohio State to 350 yards.
