College Football Preview: The Great Heisman Race


Top Contenders:
Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
After his return to the college football landscape Andrew Luck looks pretty much like the favorite to claim the Heisman. With Stanford playing in big games on national TV he'll get exposure something a quarterback at Stanford usually would not get. His numbers will be strong and he always has big plays.
LaMichael James, RB, Oregon
The speedy James is once more in the Heisman hunt. He has fantastic stats and will make every game exciting. Since the Ducks are also national title contenders he'll also get exposure. He's the best player on a strong Oregon team automatically placing him here.
Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State
The problem with Moore has always been playing in the weak WAC. I'm not sure if a move to the Mountain West will necessarily help. He has sweet accuracy and a good arm but the loss of Austin Pettis, Titus Young and Tommy Gallarda will hurt him.
Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma
Jones is the top player on atop team and will appear on this list for the first time. Smart and gifted with a good arm Jones will threaten all the top contenders thanks to his chances of winning the BCS championship. His mobility will also help.
Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
When you're as good as Trent Richardson you can technically be a first-year starter and still make this list. Richardson isn't as powerful as Mark Ingram and is in fact the opposite: a speedy, agile back. Thanks to playing in the SEC he'll be on national TV pretty much every single week.
Case Keenum, QB, Houston: Injury crippled the sixth-year starter. Could pass up NCAA's all-time passing record.
Brandon Jenkins, DL, Florida State: Underrated pass rusher reminds of Ndamukong Suh.
Taylor Martinez, QB, Nebraska: A flashy player on a gritty Nebraska team Martinez being a sophomore may hurt.
