Hart, Slaton, or McFadden? The Top Heisman Contenders To Date

Icon5. Colt Brennan, Haiwaii
Huge numbers. That's unfortunately the only thing Brennan has going for him.

4. Andre Woodson, Kentucky
Woodson has quarterbacked his team to two huge wins, and has the talent to carry the Wildcats to the SEC title. The only thing holding them—and Woodson—back is the UK defense.

3. Darren McFadden, Arkansas
McFadden is putting up huge numbers—however, those numbers are not translating into wins. An October 13th matchup with Auburn, and two huge November tests—November 10th at Tennessee and November 23rd at LSU—give McFadden impact games in which to shine.

2. Steve Slaton, West Virginia
The only reason that Slaton is not first is because lining up in the backfield with him is Pat White—not to mention that Darius Reynaud and Noel Devine also suit up for the Mountaineers. Slaton's offense is superb and West Virginia will appear in a BCS bowl.

1. Michael Hart, Michigan
Hart proved on Saturday against Penn State that he can—and will—carry his team to victory. His 44 carries, a career-high, led Michigan to a 14-9 victory, and provided hope that they could indeed capture the Big Ten title after starting 0-2. If Michigan wins the Big Ten, I believe Hart should be handed the Heisman.
