There is an incredible array of talent in the race. Among them, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, Alabama running back Trent Richardson, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, Wisconsin Montee Ball and LSU defensive back and return specialist Tyrann Mathieu.
So, who will win the Heisman? Some of the straw polls have Grffin with a slight lead. Over a fifth of the votes were put in before the last week of the College Football Season, which means Robert Griffin’s performance against Texas wasn’t taken into account for those votes. However, Andrew Luck and Trent Richardson both were absent during the last week of the season because their teams didn’t play, which could ultimately hurt their overall chances.
No matter who your favorite is to win the most prestigious award in college sports, the fact remains that this is a rare year that no one has separated themselves as a clear favorite, and the field is wide open. Tune in tonight on ESPN for the 77th Heisman Trophy Presentation.
