Heisman Race Coming Down to the Wire
With a last minute push, we are down to our top five Heisman Trophy candidates.
At No. 5 it’s A.J. McCarron of Alabama, who could be on the verge of another national title. He has two already on tap and he is a serious contender leading his team to the title once again.
Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty is No. 4 after a 17-for-31 performance for 335 yards and three touchdown performance against Texas Tech, and he also rushed for 2 more.
At No. 3 is Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota who had been No.1 most of the season, but fell after their loss to Stanford. He went 19-of-26 for 328 yards against Utah on Saturday.
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, at No. 2, did play Saturday, but with his season’s number,m any feel like he could win for a second straight year.
At No. 1 is Jameis Winston of Florida State, who continues to burn up the numbers. He went 19-for-21 with two touchdowns against Syracuse, and with the Seminoles contending for a national title, he could be set up to win the Heisman.
