Week 3 offered only one game between two ranked teams, so the notion of Heisman moments was in short supply this week. There was one great play by the current frontrunner for the award, but that play came against Wyoming. It will live in Marcus Mariota’s highlight package, but there will be more to come in bigger games. Instead, this was probably a more notable weekend for those...
