Heisman Watch 2013: Previewing the Top Contenders' Matchups for Week 6

It's conference cupcake week for the majority of college football's biggest Heisman Trophy candidates. Four of the top-five contenders will be engaged in conference play, though they won't exactly be squaring off with staunch competition.

Oregon's quarterback Marcus Mariota will take on a frail Colorado defense in Boulder, while Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater and Clemson's Tajh Boyd will be in similar situations against Temple and Syracuse, respectively.

Meanwhile, Lache Seastrunk and Baylor will begin Big 12 Conference play against an improved but still suspect West Virginia defense.

Washington's Bishop Sankey will face the biggest challenge of all the Heisman hopefuls, as the Huskies will take on No. 5 Stanford.

With Texas A&M and Johnny Manziel out of action this week, which Heisman candidate will come through and steal the spotlight?

Note: Current Heisman Top 5 based on Bleacher Report's Top 5 Heisman rankings from Barrett Sallee and The Program.
