With just four weeks remaining in the college football season, the potential contenders for the Heisman Trophy have become fewer and fewer.
This week, none of the top contenders face a decent defense. It should be fully expected that nearly all will only strengthen their case.
It could be argued that the only one who will suffer in the polls will be Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, as he is on a bye week.
Other than that, expect a lot of stat padding over this weekend.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at the top five Heisman candidates in action this weekend and how they will likely fare.
Author’s Note: The five players chosen are in accordance to ESPN’s Heisman Watch. The points listed under the Expert's Poll for each player are listed here as “Poll Points." The number of first-place votes is listed in parenthesis.
