Written by on April 13, 2015

With the new 2015-2016 College Football Odds season approaching, fans and teams alike are wondering who the new top college football quarterbacks will be now that Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota have moved up and will likely be drafted by the NFL this year. In the past, number one players were easily identified before the season even started, but this year it’s a very close call and speculation of who is the best is running high. Some of the most notable and promising players include Cody Kessler, Connor Cook, and Trevone Boykin. All of them have been recognized as most valuable players, hold several records in their schools and keep getting better and better with every passing year. Trying to predict who will be the Top NCAAF quarterbacks heading into next season is not an easy task, but it’s always fun to speculate who the best of the best really are.

Here’s Our List of Up and Coming QB’s For The 2015 NCAA Football Betting Season

Trevone Boykin – TCU

One of the major contenders is, of course, Trevone Boykin who will be entering his senior year this season. Boykin was redshirted as a freshman in 2011 and a year later took over as quarterback. In his 2014 Junior year, Boykin was the starting quarterback and finished in 4th place for the Heisman. His career with the TCU Horned Frogs has been very impressive: He was the first player in TCU history to have a 200-yard passing, 100 yard rushing and 100 yard receiving game in a single season. It’s easy to say the future is looking bright for Trevone.

Jared Goff – California

Another major player is California’s Jared Goff. Although the Golden Bears are not the highest ranked teams, Goff has beaten several of their records in his college ball career so far. For example, he holds single season records in passing yards, gained yards, offense, passes, and interceptions. A Pretty long list of records there, Goff!

Cody Kessler – USC

Next up is Cody Kessler from USC. Entering his senior year, Kessler is really drawing in attention. He was redshirted in 2011 and was a backup quarterback in 2012. He had some pretty tough competition, but Kessler earned the position of starting quarterback in 2013. When coach Steve Sarkisian was hired, Kessler won the spot for starting quarterback once again, this time beating two other good players. He has been named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year three times and Offensive Player of the week twice. Some even consider Kessler as a potential 2015 Heisman winner thanks to his record breaking game against Notre Dame where he threw for six touchdowns, the most against Notre Dame in history.

Deshaun Watson – Clemson

Clemson’s Deshaun Watson is another player who shows promise and potential. He started his college football career with the Tigers as a freshman, getting some playing time here and there. Unfortunately for Watson, he suffered a few injuries, including a broken hand, an LCL strain, and most recently, a torn ACL which benched him for the remainder of his freshman year. Watson is now a sophomore and can hopefully come back better and stronger than ever. He surely had some setbacks, but things are looking better and many think he has what it takes to be great this season.

Connor Cook – Michigan State

Another player with some real potential is Connor Cook from Michigan State. Cook is entering his senior year and many feel that he is about to step out of the shadows and into the limelight. Cook was redshirted as a freshman and was a backup quarterback in the 2012 season. After the starting quarterback was benched, Cook did his job and helped his team win the 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. In 2013, Cook played backup to the same quarterback, but he was able to take over after the first game and start for the rest of the season. He led the team to victory in the 2014 Rose Bowl where he was named offensive MVP. He was also starting quarterback for the Spartans in the 2015 Cotton Bowl in January.

Dak Prescott – Mississippi State

Finally, we have Dak Prescott who plays for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Prescott was redshirted as a freshman and was backup quarterback in 2012. He did an impressive job in the twelve games he played, completing 18 out of 29 passes, throwing for four touchdowns and with zero interceptions. In 2013 Prescott was backup quarterback again, and took over when the starting QB was injured. That year he had 156 of 267 passes completed and ten touchdowns, he was also named MVP of the Liberty Bowl. One of his most recent accomplishments is finishing eighth in the running for the 2014 Heisman Trophy, not to mention the several records he holds within Mississippi State. It will surely be interesting to see how these predictions hold up and I guess we’ll know soon enough when September finally comes by.
