With only two weeks remaining in the college football season, we’ve got a good idea of which players will be making the trip to New York for next month’s Heisman Trophy ceremony.
Following last weekend’s action, two top contenders saw their Heisman candidacies take a serious hit—one even fell completely out of the running. Continuing a string of great play, one running back has made the biggest move of any other player at his position all season long, as far as this award is concerned.
All in all, there’s been a lot of movement in the last couple of weeks, and it is setting up to be a memorable finish.
Each of these contenders will be in action this weekend. Given that all but one play on the road and two face a Top 5 opponent, we could very well see more movement come next week’s rankings.
But for now, let’s take a look at each contender's matchup and how they should fare.
