Heisman Candidates Through Nov 1

It's Cam's Heisman to lose

1. Cam Newton – 40

The Cam Newton train just keeps rolling.  Newton pulled a new trick out of his Heisman bag with a touchdown reception along with two passing touchdowns against Ole Miss.  As the stats keep piling up, it will take a major letdown for the Auburn QB to not take the prestigious trophy come December.

2. LaMichael James – 32

If you read this blog, then you already know that we love James.  His stats compare very favorably to Mark Ingram’s Heisman winning numbers from last year.  Unfortunately, he’s up against the ridiculous season of Newton.  But this could definitely help his cause – 239 yards, 3 tds.  Those are James’ stats against USC last Saturday giving him his third 200-yard game of the season.  Unreal.

3. Kellen Moore – 18

In a weird twist, Moore was able to put up the same touchdown combination as Newton.  However, I think we can all agree that it wasn’t quite as exciting.  Moore continues to put up good stats and keep his team in the hunt to bust the BCS.  Unless he starts putting up even bigger stats, Moore will be giving a congratulatory handshake to Newton or James in NYC.

4. Andrew Luck – 16

Luck didn’t have a huge game but against an average Washington team that wasn’t required.  One thing to note though was his rushing yards.  Luck racked up 91 yards and a touchdown on the ground.  His mobility and strong arm have him firmly in the race for the third spot with Moore.  If Stanford wins the Pac-10 and Luck continues to outpace Moore in key passing stats, look for him to own the third spot behind Newton and James, respectively.

5. Denard Robinson – 10

Mr. Robinson makes his return to the top five after a great performance against Penn State.  Unfortunately, Michigan’s defense can’t make the same claim.  Shoelace put up 380 total yards and 4 touchdowns in the loss.  His play continues to keep him in the Heisman conversation and while he probably won’t take him the coveted prize, he will definitely finish the season with his name to several records.
