Reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was started to see his place in the Heisman Watch slip, but after a phenomenal performance against No. 1-ranked Alabama last weekend has allowed him to return to the top of the latest poll released on Tuesday.
Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was sitting in the top spot just a week ago, but now he has fallen down to fifth-place after a lackluster performance against Kentucky.
