College football: Top 10 player rankings after Week 10
New York, New York - In one of the more chaotic weeks of college football, many of the nation's best players struggled to show the typical dominance that fans have seen since the beginning of the season.
CJ Stroud of Ohio State, Hendon Hooker of Tennessee, and Bryce Young of Alabama have all dominated as the leading quarterbacks this season.
However, on Saturday, the college football world didn't see an ounce of dominance from these three players.
While Stroud had the worst passing game of his career and arguably the worst by any top-grade passer this year throwing for only 76 yards, Hooker's performance against Georgia didn't prove anything more.
Hooker was held without a touchdown pass for the first time in 20 games and he was sacked six times, finishing with just 195 passing yards.
Similarly, Young struggled in the Crimson Tide's loss to LSU, completing 25 of 51 passes for 328 yards and throwing just one touchdown.
Yet, the most difficult performance to watch this week by a quarterback was Clemson's DJ Uiagalelei, who was benched for the second consecutive game this season.
With all the passing troubles over the weekend, it was truly the week of the running backs!
Heisman favorite Blake Corum shined on the field in the Michigan Wolverines' comeback win by rushing for 109 yards and two scores, while Texas' Bijan Robinson smashed the field with a massive 200+ rushing yard game and a touchdown.
Following Week 10, here's what TAG24 player rankings look like ahead of Week 11:
1. CJ Stroud – QB, Ohio State
2. Hendon Hooker – QB, Tennessee
3. Bryce Young – QB, Alabama
4. Blake Corum – RB, Michigan
5. Emeka Egbuka – WR, Ohio State
6. Bijan Robinson – RB, Texas
7. Caleb Williams - QB, USC
8. Bo Nix - QB, Oregon
9. Will Anderson – LB, Alabama
10. Miyan Williams - RB, Ohio State
Bijan Robinson is the best running back in the Big 12
I'm afraid we haven't talked about Robinson enough this season.
In the Longhorns' matchup last weekend against Kansas State, the junior running back undoubtedly tamed the 'Cats.
Robinson finished with 30 carries for 209 yards and a touchdown score, along with two catches for 34 yards.
Saturday marked his second-career 200-yard rushing game and his seventh consecutive game with over 100 rushing yards.
A Maxwell Award semifinalist and the Big 12's leading rusher, Robinson became the first Longhorns player to finish with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons since Vince Young in 2005.
With three more games ahead, Robinson has officially carved his name as one of the greatest Longhorns running backs of all-time thanks to his outstanding resume.
While it may be a long shot to win, Robinson's performance this season has earned him a spot on a number of watch lists for the prestigious Heisman Trophy.
On Saturday, the Longhorns return to Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium to take on No. 4 TCU at 7:30 PM ET.
