College Football Preview: The Great Heisman Race

Here are my top candiates for the Heisman award:

Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama Junior 2009 Stats: 271 rushes, 1,658 rushing yards, 20 total touchdowns
Ingram, the reigning champ, will be once again in the thick of things. If Alabama wins another championship it will help. But his weakness: splitting carries with budding back Trent Richardson. But over the years former Heisman winners have been in the talk the next season even though they didn't have those caliber seasons. I think that wil happen with Ingram. Finish: 3rd
Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State Junior 2009 Stats: 277 completions, 3,536 passing yards, 39 touchdowns, 3 interceptions
Few quarterbacks are better than Kellen Moore. Moore who might be the biggest reason Boise State is running inside the Top 10 once again, after 13-1 interception rate. His targets are talented in All WAC wide receivers Titus Young and Austin Pettis. But their is always the question when he has so easy of teams to face up against. Finish: 4th
Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas Junior 2009 Stats: 225 completions, 3,624 passing yards, 30 touchdowns, 7 interceptions
Mallett has been fantastic ever since transferring from Michigan to an Arkansas team that was in tatters after the losses of Darren McFadden, Felix Jones and Peyton Hillis. Of course it helps that Bobby Petrino's offense is so pass first, pass second, pass third. All his main receivers return. Mallett is ready to get a new trophy at his place. Finish: 1st
Case Keenum, QB, Houston Senior 2009 Stats: 492 completions, 5,671 passing yards, 44 touchdowns, 15 interceptions
You might remember Keenum the superhuman quarterback who led the Houston Cougars to the top of Conference USA including a win over Oklahoma State. Of course it hurts competing for the Heisman on a C-USA team. Anybody could just go for Terrelle Pryor, why not? Have you seen this guys stats? Finish: 2nd
