You Can Place Bets On Heisman Hopefuls in November

BU Heisman HopefulsThe pre season predictions for college football’s most prestigious award have been shaken up in the first half of the 2012 season.

These guys appear to be in contention for this year’s trophy, at this point.

On top of the current wave of speculation is Collin Klein the Quarterback from undefeated Kansas State.  It’s his Heisman to lose. If the Wildcats keep winning and he can stay healthy Klein can win it all.

Alabama Crimson Tide Quarterback A.J. McCarron has a TD-INT ratio of 16-0. McCarron is leading the nation’s top team.  The Tide stands a good chance of winning the national championship for the second year in a row under McCarron.

Line Backer Manti Te’o of Notre Dame has a shot at the Heisman. It’s a long shot for a defensive player to even be considered, but playing for Notre Dame this year helps a lot. Te’o is the unquestioned leader of the nation’s number two defense and is nationally well known as he has already been on the cover of Sports illustrated. Oregon Running Back Kenjon Barner has to be considered a super star and a fast one at that. Barner has emerged as a real contender, rushing for 460 yards while averaging more than 8.2 yards per carry with seven TDs overall. If he pulls it off he could become the first Duck to win the Heisman.

Pre season favorite Quarterback Geno Smith of West Virginia University, has dropped down somewhat in the polls as the Mountaineers have been outscored 104-28 in the past two weeks.  His best hope is if WVU routs an Oklahoma team at home a few weeks after the Sooners knock Notre Dame from the unbeaten ranks.

USC Quarterback Matt Barkley had the Heisman Trophy in the bag if you believed the pre season hype.  Despite a career best 164.1 efficiency rating with 22 touchdowns, he hasn’t been quite as sharp as expected, especially given that he throws to the nation’s best Wide Receiver duo.

Johnny Manziel, the freshman quarterback sensation from Texas A&M has been a revelation for the Aggies in their first season in the SEC.  Manziel’s putting up staggering numbers and producing jaw-dropping highlights. Manziel’s a future Heisman favorite and probably a year away.

Florida Gator Running Back  Mike Gillislee is also very good. If he has a big day against Georgia and a great one against Florida State he could have a crack it.
