List Rules Please rank the quarterbacks based on their 2012 season only. No NFL players

The top college football quarterbacks for the 2012 season are the top passers in NCAA Football who look to lead their team to the BCS National Championship Game and possibly contend for the Heisman Trophy. These skilled quarterbacks each bring something different to their team but all are among the top throwers at the collegiate level.

Considered the favorite for the Heisman in 2012, Matt Barkley, a senior quarterback for the USC Trojans, leads the pack of 2012 NCAA Football quarterbacks. Though for some of his career at Southern California the team was under NCAA restrictions, Barkley continued to shine on his own, including notching over 3,500 passing yards and almost 40 passing touchdowns in the 2011 season.

But there are dozens of other stellar college football quarterbacks eager to take over Barkley's spotlight. Among others, Denard Robinson of the Michigan Wolverines, Geno Smith of the West Virginia Mountaineers, Landry Jones of the Oklahoma Sooners and Aaron Murray of the Georgia Bulldogs are hot on Barkley's tail all hoping, just like the top NFL quarterbacks for the 2012 season, to lead their team to greatness in the 2012 season.
