Marqise Lee nabbed another 10 receptions for 161 receiving yards (227 all-purpose yards) and a touchdown against Arizona State, but remains at No. 3 in the latest Heisman Pundit/CBSSports.com Straw Poll.
After the game, Barkley was quick to praise his sophomore wideout's Heisman candidacy.
"He’s every bit deserving," Barkley said. "He’s the best player at his position. He’s done some tremendous things this year with the ball, as a receiver and as a kick returner. We’ll see how this pans out over the next couple of weeks, but he deserves to be in the conversation."
Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein remains at the top of the poll, while Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel jumped from No. 7 to No. 2 after leading the Aggies to a 29-24 upset of then-No. 1 Alabama on the road.
