It's Tyler Wilson's show now. 

In 2010, Arkansas' Wilson (6'3'', 215 pounds) came off the bench and provided decent numbers as a backup quarterback, throwing for 453 yards and four touchdowns. Now that Ryan Mallet has left for the NFL, the offensive passing system is now in Wilson's hands.

Though 2011 will be his first year starting, Wilson displayed poise and confidence leading the Razorback offense in hostile environments. Thrown inside the fire at Auburn after a Mallet injury, Wilson was 25 for 34, throwing for 332 yards. Very impressive.

Historically, the Heisman is viewed as an award that is given to a player who has produced offensively to lead the nation. With the return of explosive running back Knile Davis complimenting him, look for Wilson to show up big.
