We are now into the home stretch of the Heisman race. At this point any of the following five candidates could take home the hardware. The slightest slip up could mean the difference in finishing first or fifth.

By: Jared Ramos

1. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

Last Week: 29-40, 330 yards, 3 TD’s, 1 INT
Season: 174-242, 2,218 yards, 23 TD’s, 4 INT’s

Last week Andrew Luck showed why so many people have him as their favorite to win the Heisman trophy. After throwing a pick six, to put USC up seven, Luck marched right back down the field to tie the game up and send it into overtime. Read more »

College Football Heisman Standings: Week 8

By: Jared Ramos

The college football season is past the half way point and I think we have gotten to the point where three players have separated themselves from the pack. Two of them are household names, while the third was a former WVU commit who almost got benched before the season even started.

Now that seven weeks are in the books we are starting to see some separation at the top of our heisman standings. Andrew Luck and Trent Richardson are starting to pull away from the pack. Meanwhile, Marcus Lattimore, someone who was a candidate all season had his season come to an end with ligament damage to his left knee. Read more »

College Football Heisman Standings: Week 6

By: Jared Ramos

It’s hard to believe that we are already at the half way point of the college football season. The race for the Heisman is heating up and now is when players make their case for the trophy. To this point there has only been two surprises in my eyes for potential Heisman candidates, Russell Wilson and Tyrann Mathieu. Both are legitimate candidates to take home the hardware after beginning the season on no one’s radar.

1. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

Last Week: 26-33, 370 yards, 3 TD’s, 1 INT
Season: 106-145, 1383 yards, 14 TD’s, 2 INT Read more »

College Football Heisman Standings: Week 5

By: Jared Ramos

Two of our five Heisman candidates teams lost last week (South Carolina, Baylor), which means we are looking at a completely different list this week.

1. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

Last Week: 29 carries, 181 yards, 2 TD’s
Season: 96 carries, 622 yards, 10 TD’s

In Richardson’s last four games he has rushed for at least 111 yards. In three of his last four games he has rushed for more than 125 yards and two touchdowns. Richardson had a terrible opening week, but since then has been the best player in the country. I still believe that Marcus Lattimore is the best running back in the country, but right now no one is hotter than Trent Richardson.

Nov. 5 when the Tide host LSU will go a long way to deciding if Richardson is the second Alabama player in three years to be awarded the Heisman trophy.

College Football Heisman Standings: Week 4

By: Jared Ramos

We are now through four weeks of college football and this is about the time we start to see players solidify their position as a Heisman candidate. Once again I have reshuffled my Heisman standings, this time due to a loss. Remember it’s not just about individual statistics, but how your team performs during the year.

With that said here is our week four Heisman standings.

1. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina

Stat Line: 20 carries, 150 total yards, 2 total TD
Season: 107 carries, 611 yards, 8 TD

College Football Heisman Standings: Week 3

By: Jared Ramos

Three weeks into the college season and we are not starting to see some familiar faces on the Heisman list. Now that most teams are done playing cupcakes and begin to start conference play, we will see the cream rise to the top.

1. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina

Stat Line: 37 carries, 246 yards, 3 TD’s

Season: 87 carries, 534 yards, 7 TD’s

What can’t Marcus Lattimore do? Whenever South Carolina needs a play they turn to their workhorse in the backfield. Lattimore turned out his best performance of the season saturday against Navy as he carried the ball 37 times for 246 yards and three touchdowns. 37 carries is a lot, but when you are averaging 6.6 yards per carry you might as well continue to hand the ball off. Lattimore is separating himself from every other running back in the country at this point as he is the only back in the country to rush for more than 500 yards. The Gamecocks have a very favorable schedule moving forward which is always key to a player winning the Heisman. If they can get by a two-week stretch where they have to go to Arkansas and then home to Florida, South Carolina could very well be in the SEC Championship and undefeated.
